Texas Marital Property Law


  • An understanding of Texas marital property law is necessary for individuals contemplating marriage and may be in need of a prenuptial agreement. Married couples may find that a community property partition agreement provides benefits for asset protection and this article discusses this, also. Property earned during the marriage outside Texas and brought to Texas has surprisingly different rules upon end of the marriage by death as contrasted with end of the marriage by divorce.

Will You Leave Laughing Heirs? — Your Texas Heirs-at-Law


  • If you die without a valid will, your probate property will pass depending on many factors: are you married or unmarried? Do you have children and are they of your last spouse or of another marriage? Do you have separate property or community property? Is your property real or personal? If you are not survived by a spouse and children are both parents living? You can use this article to help determine who are your Texas heirs-at-law.

Wills vs. Living Trusts


  • Most Texans can use a last will and testament as their main estate planning document. Texas has good laws for the settlement of estates through the probate courts when there is a will. But, some Texans would be well served to have a living trust as the main estate planning document, and this article discusses who those persons are.

Lifetime Planning Documents


  • A complete estate plan is more than a will or a living trust. A complete plan includes planning for incapacity in the event you are unable to make financial and medical decisions.
