Wills in Texas

At Garg & Associates, our Houston wills attorneys have handled a wide variety of cases.  We may be able to help you if yours involves:

There are two specific particularities to Texas wills. These facets of Texas estate law set the state apart from other jurisdictions. They are:

  • The Independent Executor: Under Texas estate law, a will can name an “independent executor,” who is granted much more wide-ranging powers than a traditional executor. The independent executor can manage the will with fewer restrictions. He or she has much more freedom to sell real estate, pay off debts and taxes, and even run a business in the name of the estate. Because the independent executor operates without intervention from the courts, this option can save time and money for the estate.
  • The Self-Approving Affidavit: Several states have a provision for a self-approving affidavit, which simplifies the process of proving that the testator (the person making the will) was in sound mind when it was written. It is signed by two witnesses who attest to this fact, and can save your heirs a considerable amount of time and hassle.
