While I don’t have a will set up myself yet, I know that it’s important for all people in Texas to get that done. Let’s be honest, no one wants to think or talk about dieing even though it’s going to happen to all of us. While we would love to never have to think about it, that is not the smart way of handling things. You have worked hard and you don’t just want those things going to the state of Texas. Wait, does the state of Texas get your stuff if you don’t have a will? Let’s investigate.

If you’re living in Texas and you die without having a will it leaves your assets in limbo. Meaning that everything you’ve worked so hard for in your life might not be distributed the way you want. You’re basically leaving it up to the state of Texas to apply the intestacy law. It means the court will decide how to divide your property and assets based on a formula created by the state legislature.  

This is Why it’s So Important to Have a Will Before You Die 

The intestacy statutes in Texas do NOT consider your wishes or any special unique circumstances that might apply to you or your situation if you don’t have a will in place. Which is why you should take steps to set up your will now so you can pick who gets your specific assets.
