Why is a will important?

Tarrant County Estate Planning

In Texas, creating a will is a legal process that can be done with the help of an attorney. Here is a general overview of the steps to create a will in Texas:

  1. Decide on the person or persons who will act as the executor of your will. This person will be responsible for carrying out the instructions in your will after your death.
  2. Write down your wishes for the distribution of your property, including specific gifts of property or money to certain individuals, and specify who will be the beneficiaries and how much will be given to each.
  3. Have the will signed by two witnesses. In Texas, the will must be signed by at least two individuals, who are not beneficiaries or spouses of beneficiaries, in the presence of the testator (the person creating the will).
  4. Safely store the original copy of the will in a place where it can be easily found after your death. It’s also important to make sure that the executor of the will and any family members know where the will is located.
  5. Review your will periodically and make changes as necessary to ensure that it accurately reflects your current wishes.
