Will my will from another state work here?

Usually a will from out of state will work in Texas if it is valid in the other state. But that will likely will not work as well as a will drafted by a Texas estate planning attorney. Texas has certain things in probate that turn on language in a will. Other states don’t have the same rules. So your best action is to update your will (and the rest of your plan) when you move.
