People often ask me if they need a will.  They say they do not have a lot of property or extensive assets, so why bother?  Generally, my answer is yes, you need a will. You may not have a lot of property right now, but you do not know what the condition of your estate will be when you die.  Having a will makes it much easier for those left behind to take care of the payment of bills and distribution of any assets if you have a will..  It can often save your loved ones a lot of time and aggravation if you have left a will and can be especially helpful when there have been previous marriages and there are children from those earlier marriages and children from the later one(s).  And let's face it, most of us want to have some say in how our property is distrubuted after we die.  Having a valid will can make sure that your wishes are carried out.

While a holographic will (one that is written entirely in the testator's handwriting) is valid in Texas, it is the better practice to have an attorney prepare your will to make sure that it includes everything you want as well as meets all of the requirements of a valid will so that it can easily be admitted to probate after your death.
