Wills

A Will, also referred to as a Last Will and Testament, is a document that gives instructions on how a person’s assets should be divided and debts paid.   Every competent adult living in Texas should have a Texas Will.  If you die without a will, then your assets will pass by the laws of intestacy – which means that the State of Texas, not you, determines who will receive your assets.

To receive the full benefit of the simple Texas probate procedures, a Texas Will should be self-proving, contain an appointment of a Texas executor, and fully and completely address disposition of assets.  Because the wording is so important, a Texas Will should be written by a lawyer who is well versed in Texas Wills, Estate Planning, and Probate Law.
