Blog Post on Will Changes: A Brief Summary
Anyone in Texas who has significant assets and/or dependents should have a will. There is a strong preference that a will should be drafted under the supervision of a trained attorney, so that the client understands the parameters of the law and is able to set up his or her will in such as way as to preclude problems in the event of death. Those with more complicated assets are also well served to garner professional advice on estates and trusts. That said, handwritten wills may be valid under Texas law under certain circumstances. Changes to these wills, however, must be made in specific ways. The blog posts explains some of the parameters, but makes clear that the best course of action is to reach out to an attorney that specializes in probate law including wills and estates. Indeed, with a strong reputation in the Dallas area for probate, trust, and estate litigation, the firm’s attorneys are well positioned to answer many common questions that, unfortunately, can arise when proper procedures are not followed.
