Ed Department Warns States Not To Waive Requirements For Special Education Teachers. What this means is that while many Texas schools are filling teacher shortages with noncertified personnel, they may not be able to do it for special education positions. This is great news for students with disabilities who desperately need qualified professionals working with them to meet their IEP goals.

I just wanted to say thank you 😊
Let's talk about this!
In probate, I often hear my clients say that because they owned a bank account jointly or because they co-owned real estate, they assumed that when one party passed away, the asset automatically passed to the other owner. THIS IS FALSE.
The truth is, only some assets are titled in such a way to allow this immediate type of transfer (i.e., titles that have a right of survivorship or entirety).
If you have questions regarding how your jointly owned asset is going to transfer, be sure to call Your Lawyer Friend ™ at 713.364.2525.

Ask any attorney what their most dreaded subject was in law school, and most of us will say it was CONTRACTS. That is because contracts are complicated to draft but easy to mess up.
As a small business attorney, I see daily how bad contracts screw over good people, costing them thousands.
When it comes to your CONTRACT, make sure it is enforceable and that it protects you!
When you need someone to draft and review your contract, call Your Lawyer Friend - The JRP Law Firm

For those of you that don’t have your affairs in order, here’s a list that can help:
1) Make sure all bank accounts have direct beneficiaries. The beneficiary will only need to go to the bank with your death certificate and their ID.
2) TOD = Transfer On Death deed if you own a home. Completing this document and filing it with your county saves your heirs' THOUSANDS!!! This document allows you to transfer ownership of your home to your designee. All they need to do is take your death certificate and their ID to the county building and have the deed signed over. Doing this will avoid the home having to go through probate.
3) Living Will: Allows one to put in writing exactly what you want to be done in the event you cannot speak for yourself when it comes to healthcare decisions.
4)Durable Power of Attorney: This allows one to designate a person to make legal decisions if one is no longer competent to do so. AND Power of Attorney for Healthcare: This document allows one to designate someone to make healthcare decisions for their person.
5) Last Will & Testament: Designates to whom personal belongings will go too. Make sure it is handwritten and signed. Or printed, notarized, and signed to be valid.
6) Funeral Planning Declaration: allows one to say exactly one’s wishes as far as the disposition of the body and services.
If the above documents are done, you can AVOID probate. If all the above is not done, you have to open an estate account at the bank. All money that doesn’t have direct beneficiaries goes into this account. You have to have an attorney to open the estate account. The attorney also has to publicize your passing in the newspaper or post-publication at the county courthouse, to allow anyone to make a claim on your property. - It’s a long arduous process that can cost $2,500 and more in legal fees.
7) Make a list of all banks and account numbers, all investment institutions with account numbers, lists of credit cards, utility accounts, etc. Leave clear instructions as to how and when these things are paid.
8 Make sure heirs know where life insurance policies are located.
9) Make 100% sure SOMEONE knows your Apple ID, bank ID account logins and passwords!
10) Make sure you have titles for all vehicles, campers, etc!
11) MOST IMPORTANTLY!!!! - Talk with those closest to you and make all your wishes KNOWN. Talk to those whom you’ve designated, as well as those close to you whom you did not designate. Don’t avoid these important conversations with your loved ones! This will also help explain why your decisions were made and avoid any lingering questions or potentially hurt feelings. - It has to be done!
12) Make an appointment with The JRP Law Firm (www.jrpfirm.com) or with a qualified Estate Attorney licensed to practice law in your state (these laws, and the requirements to make these documents valid, differ from state to state. There’s a reason attorneys go to law school for years and then have to pass a multi-day written examination, to be licensed to practice law - it’s complex. Minor omissions or errors can have significant legal implications. If you don’t do a will correctly, it can quickly be completely invalidated. Don’t leave these things to a Google search or some cheap form you pick up at an office store. Do this right! It’s important.
***Also, an attorney can help you set up a "Living Trust,” which will save your loved ones from having to go through probate, which is a long and costly process that can also take away a substantial amount from your heirs' inheritance.

Depp: Good bye Amber.
Heard: Tell me something Johnny, do you still love me?
