Legal Answers
867 Questions Answered

Q. I want to leave everything to my wife. But it is a large estate.....$30 million or so. Is it all tax free to her?
A: I suggest you sit with an estate planning attorney as you may want to consider setting up a trust as well as other options. Texas does not have an inheritance tax; however the IRS does and that's where it can become complicated very quickly. Whether you are speaking of a few hundred thousand dollars or millions of dollars, I suggest sitting one on one with an experienced attorney to help you accomplish your wishes; please do not rely on the internet for your estate plan.
Q. All of the heirs to my Father's estate are listed on the Will, but not as an executor, what does this mean?
A: There is only one executor or co-executors and the heirs listed are most likely beneficiaries under the will. You will need to look carefully to see what section they are listed under.
Q. Can anyone give me information on what to do about elder mother not able to live alone. I live in Tx
A: Many of the counties have probate/guardianship courts that will send investigators out; however, I am not sure about the county your mom lives in. In this situation it is probably best to call APS.
