Planning For The Needs of Your Family
Your family will have a lot to deal with when they lose you. Grief is one of the most challenging emotions that we experience as humans, and it comes in waves and at inconvenient times. It can hit at work, at a red light, at the grocery store. Your family will need to manage the huge emotions of their loss.

The time after a loss is also a logistically challenging time, which is compounded by the emotional difficulty

Your family will need to speak with insurance agents, stop subscriptions, find ways to access your email and other virtual accounts, plan a funeral and take care of any outstanding items on your to-do list, all while mourning the loss of someone that they love.

That is why one of the most loving things that you can do for your family is making the time after your own death a little bit easier

When they are already dealing with the loss of someone important, every tiny logistical hurdle can feel nearly insurmountable. That is why leaving a clear path forward can be so helpful for the people that you love. You can leave a password spreadsheet in a safe place, make sure your family knows whether you want to be buried or cremated, and prepare a will.

Creating a Will in Laredo

A will is one of the most important legal documents you will ever create because it determines your legacy. Your will is what will make sure that your grandchildren receive the money you have been set aside for their college, or that your best friend gets that favorite necklace you bought on vacation together. It makes sure that all of your assets, large and small, end up exactly where you want them to. Inheritances can, unfortunately, tear families apart, so by thinking things through before the time comes, you can help ensure family harmony for decades to come.

In most cases, people want the majority of their assets to go to either their spouse or their children

This makes writing a will relatively simple. However, you might want a few things, like that beloved necklace, to go to someone else. Or you might want to specify which of your children will receive which items, to head off potential squabbles after you are gone.

That doesn’t mean that you need to determine who will get each mug in your cupboard - it just means that it is essential to think through your most prized possessions and where you would like them to go when you are no longer here

If you are ready to write a will, get in touch with us at Rudy Santos Law. We can help you create a will that is both clear and concise, so your family can carry out your wishes.

Completing the Probate Process

If you are the family member of someone who has died, you may need to navigate the probate process

This is the process of proving that a will is a valid legal document

You’ll want a good lawyer on your side to make sure that everything goes smoothly. There are typically four steps to this process:

  1. Notifying all heirs and identifying an executor of the will.
  2. Giving notice to any creditors and inventorying property.
  3. Paying estate and funeral expenses.
  4. Dividing property according to the will.

When you work with a lawyer from Rudy Santos Law, you can trust that the process will go smoothly and relatively quickly
