Sometimes, sharing an inheritance can be just as bitter as a divorce. The decedent may not have left a will designating an executor to administer the estate. Even worse, the person designated to serve as the executor may be an extremely poor choice for such an important job. Perhaps the alleged will is a fake or was fraudulently obtained at a time when the decedent was mentally compromised. In these situations, you need a Central Texas probate attorney who can assist you in contesting the appointment of an unqualified person to serve as the executor of the estate. The Law Offices Of Gregory K. Simmons, P.C. can also assist you in holding a previously appointed executor to his or her fiduciary duties, and if necessary, assist in having the executor removed by the court.
The process for probating an estate without a will is more complicated than probating an estate with a will. Studies indicate that disputes are less likely to break out when there is a will as opposed to when a will does not exist. We all know we should have an estate plan in place to deal with our medical needs and our estates in the event of death or incapacity. Yet, we put it off.
The Law Offices Of Gregory K. Simmons, P.C. can also assist you with the preparation of your Last Will and Testament as well as any ancillary estate planning documents such as a power of attorney or living will. We make the process easy! Let us help you create a plan that both preserves your estate for the people you care about while minimizing the burden on your family.
Guardianship is the process where a court determines that a person is unable to make his or her own personal and financial decisions and appoints a guardian to make those decisions. Guardianship is often sought for seniors or those who are afflicted with dementia, Alzheimer's disease, or some other affliction which compromises their ability to make responsible decisions. Guardianship is also sought for persons with special needs that have reached the age of 18 years. If you have a loved one who you think needs a guardian, please call our office at (254) 616-2529 or click here to schedule a free initial consultation.
