Preparing and Updating Your Will in Fort Bend County

A will is a vital legal instrument that gives all manner of instructions that are to be carried out concerning your estate upon your death. The legal foundation gives credence and authority to your wishes. Within your will, you should include:

  • The name of the executor you have chosen (to carry out your wishes as spelled out within the will document)
  • The names of all beneficiaries who are to receive your assets, as well as how those assets are to be distributed (coming of age, percentages, division of asset provisions, etc.)
  • Establishing and naming a Guardian/Conservator for any dependent children or adults that will manage their ongoing care
  • Instructions for the establishment and management of any new trusts
  • Instructions for the management/distribution of any existing trusts

As your life circumstances change, these can affect your final wishes. Therefore, they should be reflected in your will. For example, as your family grows, you may wish to add beneficiaries. Or your assets may change, making it necessary to reflect those changes in your will. Other financial circumstances or even state and federal tax laws may change throughout your lifetime, and changes to your will are necessary to protect your assets, beneficiaries and final wishes.
