Making an estate plan

Texas individuals who fail to create an estate plan may put their wealth and heirs in jeopardy. The laws of intestacy take over when wills are not in place, so some intended beneficiaries may not receive anything under a particular state's laws. Additionally, the estate may have to pay out money in taxes that otherwise could have gone to beneficiaries if a solid estate plan was in place. While some individuals may avoid creating an estate plan so that they do not have to think about what will happen if they die, drafting a basic will does not have to be a somber process.
