Woman uses estate plan to help fight bullying

There are many different causes a person may care greatly about during the course of their lifetime. An important thing to note is that a person's support of causes that are important to them doesn't have to end when they pass away. One of the things individuals here in Texas can use estate plans for is setting up after-death gifts towards causes they care about so they can continue to financially support the cause even after they die. 

Survey: nearly 2/3rds of Americans are without a will

Wills are very powerful and helpful legal documents. They let a person express, in a legally enforceable manner, what should happen with their property and other important matters when they die. Thus, having a will can give a person a great deal of control regarding what will happen when they pass away.

Probate implications of the same-sex marriage decision

As our readers have likely heard, last week, the U.S. Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal throughout the entire nation. This will have some major implications here in Texas, as Texas was one of the states that did not legally recognize such marriages. An important thing to note is that these implications are not limited to just the area of family law. The Supreme Court's decision has implications for many areas of law here in Texas, including estate planning and probate.
