Consult With Henderson Probate Attorneys Who Understand Estate Law

It's common for individuals to overlook or completely disregard the idea of preparing estate planning documents before they reach a certain age. The reality is that an estate plan may be one of the most helpful instruments you can give your surviving family members at the time of your incapacitation or death. Our firm can help you draft and designate a:

  • Will: This is a legal document that outlines your wishes for what is to be done with your property and finances when you die.
  • Living will: Also known as a physician's directive, a living will clearly states what medical measures you wish to be taken in the event that you become incapacitated. These wishes usually include directions regarding artificial respiration, organ donation, feeding and hydration.
  • Physician's directive: See above
  • Power of attorney (general and medical): A durable power of attorney is a document that designates a person to have the legal right to make important decisions for you if you are unable to. A medical power of attorney is a document that designates a dedicated person to legally make medical decisions on your behalf in the event of your incapacitation.

Our Tyler estate planning attorneys also provide tenacious representation in cases involving contested wills.

Assisting You With Probate Administration

When you are coping with the loss of a loved one, the last thing you will likely want to deal with is the often complicated process of probate. It involves the collection and distribution of property and assets, as well as paying off debt and taxes. The length of probate will depend on the availability of a documented will, the number of heirs and the size of the estate.

At our firm, our lawyers will guide you and your family through the legal steps that need to be taken during the probate process in order to move through it as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
