Can someone contest my will?

Yes. However, Texas allows you to include a “no contest” clause. This kind of clause basically says that if someone tries to contest your will after you die, that person forfeits his inheritance if he loses. Texas supports this unless the person contesting the will does that in good faith and had just cause – a solid reason – for contesting the will.
