Decatur Family Law and Probate Attorney

It’s Imperative To Have A Will

While planning for the future can be intimidating, it is a necessary step. Without a will in place, your wishes may not be met and loved ones are forced to make difficult decisions. Let The Law Offices of Marilyn J. Belew, P.C., help simplify the process. We have helped clients throughout Texas for over 20 years.

Quite simply, a will is a place for you to clearly state your requests. From dividing up your assets to your medical preferences, it is a legal document that helps surviving relatives after you have passed. A well-written will transfers property quickly and avoids many tax burdens. Marilyn Belew approaches each case with the attention to detail it deserves. Together we can prepare a plan you will be comfortable with.

Choosing The Right People Is Important

A vital step in the wills process is determining who your power of attorney will be. This should be a trusted family member or close friend. If you are unable to make important decisions on your own, they can make both health care and end-of-life decisions on your behalf.

You also will need to decide who your executor is. They are responsible for making sure the terms of your will are carried out. If you don’t name an executor, the court will appoint someone to do it, which means a family member who you haven’t discussed things with may be making decisions.
