Estate Planning Laws

Estate Planning Attorney in Texas

Our End Goal Is Your Peace of Mind

The process of estate planning involves arranging for the distribution of a person’s estate after they have passed away. The purpose of estate planning is twofold. To eliminate uncertainties associated with the administration of probate and to maximize the estate’s value through the lowering of taxes and other expenses.

The ultimate goal of a person’s estate plan, however, will be determined by their specific goals. It may be as simple or complex as the client’s particular needs dictate. In many cases, the estate plan will designate guardians for the minor children and name beneficiaries.

At Alex R. Hernandez, Jr. PLLC, our legal team can help with the following:

If you are concerned with how your estate will be managed when you are gone, it is critical that you have a will established as soon as possible. Because it can be such a delicate and complicated process, you should turn to an experienced estate planning attorney who can walk you through the process and ensure that your wishes are upheld.

Avoid Intestacy at All Costs

If you fail to create a carefully drafted will or trust, the state will step in through what is known as intestate after you pass away.

Laws of intestacy determine:

  • Who will get your assets
  • How they will get them
  • And guarantees your estate will pay the highest amount of estate taxes possible

To avoid heavy taxes and having another party determining your estate's future, call The Law Offices of Alex R. Hernandez, Jr. PLLC. We are here to help you take control of your assets and their future.
