Are you concerned about estate conflicts after your death?

As a member of a loving family, the idea of leaving your loved ones with a complicated estate may not seem like a plausible scenario. Therefore, you may want to take the time to effectively create an estate plan that details your wishes for addressing the closing of your estate. In many cases, making your wishes known can lessen complications and help surviving family feel better by knowing they have done what you wanted.

Of course, your loving family may also have issues of its own that could potentially result in conflict after your demise. In efforts to reduce the possibility for conflict and confusion as much as possible, you may wish to take certain steps in your planning.

Specific details

Having specific details in your estate plan when it comes to distributing property can often help individuals avoid fighting over assets. Of course, you may not wish to list every single piece of personal property in your will. Instead, you could create a personal property memorandum that lists specific property and the individual you want to receive each asset.

Make Updates

One issue that can easily create substantial conflict relates to an outdated estate plan. If you create your plan early, you may go through many life changes that could make certain aspects of your plan invalid. As a result, if you do not take the time to update that plan to address those changes, your family may face issues when it comes time to address your remaining estate. In some cases, outdated plans could even result in ex-spouses still having beneficiary status.

Talk with your family

Communication can act as one of the best methods for avoiding conflict over property or other issues. By speaking with your family about your wants and their desires, you may have the ability to take into consideration certain views that may influence your estate planning decisions. Hopefully, those influences allow you to understand the best approach for avoiding unnecessary complications after your demise.

Speak with an attorney

After holding a discussion, or multiple discussions, with your family, you may feel ready to move forward with the legal aspect of your plan. By speaking with a seasoned Texas attorney, you can create a valid estate plan that addresses your needs and concerns. Once you have your plan in place, you may feel a sense of relief in knowing that you took steps to lessen stress for your family in the event of your death.
