Our team of experienced attorneys is here to assist you in creating a will that reflects your wishes and protects your assets.
Why You Need a Will in Texas
A will is a legal document that allows you to specify how your assets will be distributed after your death. Without a will, the state of Texas will determine how your assets are divided according to the intestacy laws. This means that your assets may not be distributed in the way that you would have wanted, and it can cause unnecessary stress and legal expenses for your loved ones.

- Texas Will Requirements: In order for a will to be valid in Texas, it must meet certain requirements. The person making the will (known as the testator) must be at least 18 years old and of sound mind. The will must be in writing, signed by the testator, and witnessed by two or more competent witnesses who are at least 14 years old and not beneficiaries of the will. A holographic will (written entirely in the testator’s handwriting) does not require witnesses, but it must be entirely in the testator’s handwriting and signed and dated by the testator.
- Choosing an Executor: In Texas, the executor is the person who is responsible for administering the will and distributing assets to the beneficiaries. It is important to choose someone who is trustworthy and capable of handling this responsibility. You can also choose a backup executor in case your first choice is unable to serve.
- Types of Assets to Include in Your Will: You can include any assets that you own in your will, including real estate, personal property, bank accounts, investments, and more. It is important to keep your will up-to-date as your assets change over time.
- Providing for Minor Children: If you have minor children, it is important to include provisions in your will to ensure that they are cared for in the event of your death. You can name a guardian to take care of your children and set up a trust to provide for their needs.
