Experienced Texas Trust and Estates Attorney Can Draft Your Last Will and Testament and other Estate Planning Documents
A Will is essential at every stage of your life. With a Will, you can distribute your property, establish care for your children and express your wishes upon your death. A Will is necessary if you intend to leave property to a person or entity other than a blood relative, such as a domestic partner, a friend or a charity. If you die without a Will, Texas law determines how your property is distributed and who cares for your children, which may not reflect your desires.
Kevin L. Ferrier will also prepare other necessary estate planning documents including a Durable Power of Attorney, Health Care Power of Attorney, Directive To Physicians and Declaration of a Guardian.
Kevin L. Ferrier can draft a valid Will and other estate planning documents that ensures your intentions are honored.

Appointment of guardianship
If you have minor children, your will allows you to make decisions about their future care, which is especially crucial if you are a single parent or if both parents die in a common incident. If you do not name a guardian, the court will appoint a guardian for your children and can make decisions adverse to your ultimate parenting goals.
