Your prenup may be invalid

If you signed a prenuptial agreement before your Texas wedding, you are likely under the impression that you will be protected if you and your spouse ever decide to divorce. The truth is that some prenups were not created under legal circumstances and will not be upheld when brought before a court of law. We at the Law Office of Randy Michel can help you determine if your agreement was valid and help you protect your rights if your marriage ends in divorce. 

Is this your first teaching semester since your divorce?

College campuses in Texas are gearing up for a new school year. As a teacher, you probably have mixed emotions about that idea. Although you may look forward to getting back in the classroom, meeting new students (or reconnecting with some who are returning) and doing what you do best: teaching — you might also be a little sad that your vacation is coming to an end. If your summer included settling a divorce, your emotions may still be a bit raw as well.

Identifying the right executor for your will

When you are looking to create or update your will in Texas, you should give special consideration to who you name to act as the executor of your will. It is best to avoid the temptation to just automatically select someone very close to you. Your spouse, adult child or sibling, for example, may logically be important to you but that does not mean that they are best suited for this very important task. 

What information is needed to secure a guardianship?

A guardianship can be a great way to ensure that your needs are met and your wishes are honored if you ever become incapable of expressing them. It can also provide protection for any family members you leave behind. If you have decided that a guardianship will be the best option for your estate planning in Texas, you can begin the process of creating one.

Can a divorce be healthy?

If you are considering ending your marriage or maybe are already in the process of a divorce in Texas, you know that this process can be an emotionally charged one. However, it does not have to be done in such a way that wrecks you or your children emotionally. The American Psychological Association indicates that there are steps you can take to help make sure the emotional health and well-being of you and your children is properly addressed even during a divorce.

Protecting your rights and interests during the probate process

Many people do not understand the probate process or know what it means to go through it when settling an estate. You may think that simply because a loved one left you property or assets in his or her will that there is nothing else you need to do except to accept it, but that is not always the case.

When a will can be contested

While you may assume that once your loved one has created a will, the final say has been made and all arrangements are concrete, the truth is that the validity and veracity of a will can be contested. One key to following the correct legal procedures is knowing when this can happen. This can help you determine whether you have the right to challenge a will’s validity, but can also help you understand the charges if someone else is questioning your loved one’s will. We at the Law Office of Randy Michel can help you present any evidence that supports the need to change a will or fight for the protection of a will that you feel is being improperly contested.
