Texas no longer has a Probate Code

Dallas Probate Attorney

As of January 1, 2014, Texas no longer has a Probate Code. All provisions have been incorporated into the new Estates Code. There were very few if any substantive changes. A person, generally, has 2 years to commence a contest regarding the validity of a Will. The 2 year statute of limitations begins on the date that the Will was admitted to probate – Estates Code, section 256.204.

Do you have a living will a/k/a Advanced Directive for Health Care?

Dallas Attorney talks about living wills

Do you have a living will a/k/a Advanced Directive for Health Care? You need one – everyone does. The Advanced Directive guides your family and health care providers regarding health care decisions when you are unable to communicate with them. Specifically, a living will typically addresses how you wish to be cared for when you are suffering from a terminal or irreversible condition from which you are expected to die. If you are in alive but in a vegetative state, and you will not live without life sustaining treatments do you want to be kept alive in this vegetative state? Do you want to be allowed to die naturally? More importantly, do your family and your doctor know your wishes and will they honor them? This is just one example, but it is something to think about.Do you have a living will a/k/a Advanced Directive for Health Care? You need one – everyone does.
