As I age, my clients have aged with me. I have more and more clients that have had a spouse die or has previously divorced and have remarried. Often, the newly married couple have their own family of children. Sometimes, the financial assets brought into this new marriage are even, more often they are not.
The desires of such a second marriage couple as to what financially happens they pass on are not accomodated by Texas intestacy laws. It is vitally important for such a couple to plan in advance what and how their assets will be used and distributed upon the first spouse's death and subsequently upon the surviving spouse's death.
Contact your attorney today to discuss these important issues. The two families will thank you.
