Have Questions?

We Have Answers!
  • Does divorce have any impact on a will?

    Yes, divorce has an impact on a will in Texas. While the will is still valid, the deceased’s ex-spouse and their relatives will no longer be a part of the will – even if they were included.

    Contact your estate planning attorney to ensure that all the documents are in order whenever a significant life event occurs, such as a birth, divorce, or death.

  • Is it always necessary to probate a will in Texas?
    If a person dies, leaving behind a will, the executor can only implement its provisions after going through the probate process. However, some assets are automatically transferred to beneficiaries through a trust, joint ownership with a right of survivorship, or accounts with direct payments to beneficiaries.
  • Do I need an attorney to probate a will in Texas?

    It is possible to probate a will in Texas without an attorney because of “independent administration.” Independent administration means executors can work with little probate court supervision.

    Even though an individual can probate a will on their own, it’s recommended that you seek the help of an attorney.

  • Can I contest a will in Texas?

    Contact a probate attorney to contest a will. A will can be challenged in Texas for one of the following reasons:

    • Lack of testamentary capacity: The person who wrote the will didn’t understand the consequences of their actions.
    • Undue influence: Someone was inappropriately influencing the person creating the will.
    • Due execution: The will was not properly witnessed or signed.
