Not only is life seemingly more complex these days, but so are family structures. Same-sex marriage, blended families, single parents, life-partners (not married), and many other relationships that were not very common in the past have become very common today. For those in complex relationships, failing to properly plan can have devastating effects on you and those you love.

Rather, your one-half of the community estate will go to your children. This is just one example of the traps in Texas law that our expert attorneys can help you navigate around.
