Muniment of Title

A Muniment of Title is primarily a legal document that shows the ownership of an asset. This word derived from the Latin phrase munimentum which means: written evidence of title to property. This would include titles, deeds, Wills, and even court judgments. So, essentially what this means is that an heir to an estate may file this type of action for probate of the Will by a Muniment of Title. This is mainly the petitioner asking the court to recognize them as a beneficiary of the properties in the estate and requesting that the property titles be transferred to them. You may wonder what the benefit to this is over a standard Will as it bypasses the administration of the Will. This means that the muniment route can be a more natural and less expensive way of settling the descendant's estate.

Why Do You Need a Muniment of Title?
Let’s say a person has died leaving property behind in Texas and it is in that person's name. At this point, the property cannot be sold or leased without the person’s signature on the documents. Because of this, the name of the descendant must, therefore, be removed from the title in order to allow his heirs to sell or transfer the property. A Muniment of Title makes it possible for the heirs of the property to do that. To establish a Muniment of Title, there are a few requirements. One is that the descendant must have died leaving a Will and real properties in Texas. The second is that the probate court must have jurisdiction over the estate of the descendant, and also that a citation has been served in return. Three, the estate cannot have any outstanding debts, except obligations that are secured by liens on the estate. And finally, there’s no need for administration of the estate.

Wylie Estate Planning Attorney
A Muniment of Title can make the whole process simpler when the descendant of an estate has passed. There are some requirements as was mentioned above. If your estate meets these requirements and you are looking at the future for your heirs, then perhaps you should consider a Muniment of Title. Regardless, if you go with a Muniment of Title or anything else you should weigh your options with an attorney that specializes in Estate Planning. Edmondson Law, PLLC specializes in estate planning and is here to help you weigh your options and make an educated decision on the future of your estate.

Don’t Be Pushed Around

Separation can be a very trying time. You spent years building a life with someone just for it to end and the two of you go your separate ways. The separation can be much tougher if children are involved. Because both parents clearly love their children, they want to be with their children as much as possible. The problem with this is that it is physically impossible for the children to be in two places at the same time. So, by the very nature of separation, it is inevitable that one parent is not going to have their children while the other parent does. This, of course, can cause problems and conflicts over who is going to have the children and when.

Court Ordered Visitation Rights
If you are facing a separation, then it is highly probable that you’ve already contacted your lawyer. The court system will declare who’s going to have primary custody and who will be given visitation rights. Typically, these visitation rights can be on the first, third, and fifth weekends of each month. The person that does not have primary custody can also have a month out of the summer visitation rights. In some cases, the person that does not have primary custody will also have the child, or children, one night during the week. The court tries to be fair in its decision to ensure that both parents will have a significant role in raising the children. Many times, however, the parent that did not get primary custody might not be happy with this. As a result, they will push and push and push in order to have weekends that are not court ordered, days that are not listed in the court documents, or different times in the summer than their designated month.

Family Law Attorney
You can’t blame the other parent for pushing. If you give in, however, you will set a precedent and that other person will continually push for more visitation than what the court has ordered. This could very well result in you losing some of your power or control in the situation and not play as big of a role in your child’s life as the court had initially deemed. You cannot allow this to happen; you must stand your ground and get the help of a professional lawyer. If you are facing a separation and children are involved then you need an experienced law team on your side to ensure that you will have the maximum role in your children’s lives. So, if you are facing a separation and you have children who are involved, then please do not delay and call Edmondson Law, PLLC today.

Letter of Testamentary

A letter of testamentary is essentially a document that is issued by the court or public official authorizing the executor of the Will to obtain control of the deceased’s estate. So what does this mean exactly? It means that it’s legal proof that the person who is going to be the executor to have control of the estate. The executor is responsible for a variety of things. For example, it’s the executor’s job to inventory the estate, pay off outstanding debts, and distribute the estate accordingly to the Will. When dealing with banks or other financial institutions, estranged family members, or anyone else he doesn’t know, this letter is the proof that you will need to get business done accordingly. By having a letter of testamentary, the whole process of dealing with an estate after a loved one has died can be much simpler.
