Validating Your Will

A will is a written document that mandates the distribution of your assets after your death. Without a will, your estate will be distributed in accordance with the probate laws of Texas at the time of your death, without the consent or input of your loved ones. In order to secure your family’s financial future, you must create a will.

If you have not yet created a will, or are in the process of creating a will, you should speak with an attorney who can assist you with the compilation and validation process. Contact the Houston will and trust attorneys of Garg & Associates, P.C. by calling 281-362-2865 today to schedule a free initial consultation.

Requirements

In order for your will to be valid, several requirements must be satisfied. For example,

  • The creator of the will must be at least 18 years old
  • You must be of sound mind, and have written the will voluntarily
  • Your will must be written in detail, using language that could not be misinterpreted
  • You must sign your will in the presence of at least two witnesses, who must also sign your will
  • For extra security, have it notarized

Wills can be simple and short or long and fairly complex, depending on the size of your estate. In order to be certain that your will communicates your wishes, contact an experienced attorney who can assist you.
