Adoption is a time of joy, but also can be a time of great stress. You need an attorney who understands your situation and will guide you through the process. Mary and her husband have adopted themselves and also have adopted nieces and nephews, therefore can uniquely understand how joyful, yet sometimes frightening, that experience can be.

You may think that you have no need for a will, but there are so many reasons to make sure you have a valid will to benefit your loved ones when you are gone. Some people do “on-line” wills only for the family to discover it wasn’t done according to Texas law, causing unnecessary difficulties for the loved ones during an already hard time. With blended families, step-parents, step-children, etc, it’s best to clearly state in your will the division of your assets upon your death, so that those remaining can have peace. Younger people often do not consider a will a necessity.
One big question you can address in your will is what will happen to your most precious “possession” when you are gone: your children? In a will you can name a guardian for your children should you, the parents, not be there. Often this is the most agonizing decision of all, because no one will raise your children like you!
