Why Do I Need a Will?

A will is a legal document that allows you to dictate how your property will be distributed after your death. If you die without a will, the intestate succession laws of the state of Texas will determine how your property is divided. These laws generally provide that your property will go to your closest living relatives, such as your spouse, children, parents, and siblings, in equal shares. If you have no living relatives, your property will go to the state.

What Are the Requirements for a Will in Texas?

There are several requirements that a will must meet in order to be valid in Texas. If a will does not meet all of these requirements, it may be declared invalid and your estate may be distributed according to the intestate succession laws.

In Texas, a will must meet the following requirements:

  • The testator, or the person making the will, must be at least 18 years old and of sound mind. This means that the testator must be able to understand the nature of the will and the effect it will have on his or her property. If the testator is not of sound mind, the will can be challenged in court.
  • The will must be in writing. A will can be typed or handwritten, but it must be written down on paper. An oral will, or a will that is recorded on video or audio, is not valid in Texas.
  • The will must be signed by the testator. The testator must sign the will at the end of the document. If the testator is unable to sign the will, he or she can direct someone else to sign the will on his or her behalf. This must be done in the presence of the testator and the person signing the will must be able to witness the testator’s signature.
  • The will must be witnessed by at least two people. The witnesses must be at least 14 years old and must be able to understand that the document they are witnessing is the testator’s will. The witnesses must sign the will in the presence of the testator.
