After dying without a will, someone's estate is called "intestate." Transferring a loved one's wealth without a will and other estate planning documents can be an extraordinary challenge, especially for those who have never been through the process before.
At The Powell Law Firm, we can help. With more than 70 years of combined legal experience, our attorneys have a wealth of knowledge in the fields of estate planning, estate administration and intestate matters. Representing clients in Pearland, Houston and the surrounding Texas areas, our lawyers understand how the process works to walk clients through the legal processes involved.
No Will After Death ∙ The Process Of Intestate Succession
Estate administration can be a relatively simple process when there is a will. Without a will, many assets are transferred through trusts and other estate planning documents that have been established. Absent a will, the transfer of other assets is governed by statute.
Our attorneys have a thorough understanding of the laws of intestate, and we can advise you of your rights and help you protect your interests through the process.
If you want to retain control of how your assets are distributed after your death, create a comprehensive wealth transfer plan with our experienced lawyers. This will allow you to transfer wealth according to your wishes and objectives, while avoiding the state taking control of your property.
