These are some crazy times with the Covid-19 pandemic. We are still handling some legal matters, but it's at a "snail's" pace. The other day we actually did a probate hearing using a video conference with my Iphone. Do your best to "shelter in place" and "personal distance." I know by working together, we will get through this. Good luck to everyone.

A basic estate planning package that everyone should have consists of a will, a directive to physicians, a statutory durable power of attorney and a health care power of attorney. Many clients come in to have a will prepared, but they are not aware of these other documents that they should have. A will only takes affect upon one's death. It does nothing while you are alive. A directive to physician is a document that states that if your condition is terminal, and you are expected to die within 6 months, etc. as attested to by your treating physician, etc., then your wishes are that you do not want to be kept alive on life support, etc. The reason for this is that you do not want your estate being wasted on medical treatment when you know you are going to die, and it saves your estate for your beneficiaries. The Health Care Power of Attorney is for situations where you are incapacitated, or incompetent to make decisions, then you appoint someone to speak for you when it comes to making health care decisions. And finally, a Statutory Durable Power of Attorney can take affect immediately upon ex*****on, or also be set up to be effective only when you become incapacitated, etc. You appoint someone to make decisions for you, that are not health care decisions. Please research this further on your own, and if I can be of assistance, give me a call.

If it has been several years since your divorce, and your ex-spouse is making more money now than when you were divorced, you may be entitled to more child support. You have the right to file a Petition to Modify, and request that the child support obligation be increased, The law states that in order to modify your prior order, whether for child support, custody, visitation, etc., you must prove that there has been a "material and substantial change in the circumstances of the parties or child". Bottom line is that our Texas Supreme Court Guidelines state that the child support payor should be paying 20% of net resources for one child, and 5% extra for each additional child. Also keep in mind that the modification can go the other way. Let's say you are the child support payor, and when you got divorced you had a much higher paying job than you do now. A modification requesting a decrease in your child support obligation might be in order.

Under Texas law, everything acquired after marriage is presumed to be community property, and that is what the Court will divide upon divorce.
However, there are three exceptions to this :"community property presumption."

Even after marriage, if you acquire an asset by inheritance, gift, or recovery for pain and suffering, that asset remains separate property and the Court cannot award it to your spouse.

For example, I'm married and after marriage I inherit $200,000.00 from my father. That $200,000.00 is separate property and not divisible upon divorce.

However, you have to be careful to maintain it's "separate property character" by not commingling it with community funds.

I hope this information is helpful to you..

At this time of year, we all reflect on how blessed we are and on what changes we need to make for the new year. I suggest everyone get a basic estate planning package put in place, so that we are protected and our family members are not put in difficult situations. What I suggest is that everyone get a will done, or have their existing will updated; get a living will (directive to physicians) prepared; and get both a statutory durable power of attorney and a health care power of attorney prepared. I hope everyone has a safe, healthy and prosperous new year.
