Wills make up a significant part of any estate planning portfolio. They allow you to determine how your assets and possessions will be distributed after you pass away. Important as wills are, they are only a means to an end – securing your legacy and financially caring for your loved ones, even from the grave. We at the Law Office Of Aurelio Garza know this full well and have structured our wills services so that it is as easy for you as possible to navigate this area of the law. Based in McAllen, Texas, we know what most Southern Texans need when it comes to wills and managing their estate.
Our wills and estates lawyers know the full range of all a will can do for you. Not commonly known, wills can do the following for you:Distribute Assets
With a will, you can specify how you want your assets, namely real estate property, savings, retirement accounts, and other belongings you have that may be valuable, to be distributed. This is crucial because, without a will in place, you run the risk of your assets not only being distributed in this manner but also costing your loved ones more time and money to receive what would otherwise be distributed essentially seamlessly. In instances where a dispute arises pertaining to your assets, our contested wills attorney steps in to ensure matters are resolved in a way you would have hoped or, in worst-case scenarios, are fair to all parties involved.Guide Guardianship
Wills can also have implications for matters of guardianship, enabling you to appoint them for children who are minors or other dependents. This serves to extend your case for them even beyond your passing. This is especially important for beneficiaries who may be disabled and unable to manage things on their own.
An executor may be irreplaceable in your situation, as they can handle managing an estate, including taking care of aspects of distributing your assets, paying any debt, and acting on your behalf in legal proceedings like wills and trusts lawsuits. An experienced wills attorney from our law firm will help you determine who may be a good candidate to serve as your executor should you decide having one is the route you want to take.Find Peace Of Mind
