Do-It-Yourself Guide for Handwritten 'Holographic' Wills in Texas

“Do-It-Yourself Guide for Handwritten ‘Holographic’ Wills in Texas” is a short guide about how to use and write holographic (hand-written) wills in Texas, including sample language to include in a holographic will. Hand-written wills can address very basic issues and do not replace the advice of an estate-planning attorney, but may be useful during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, when signing a will in person with a notary and witnesses may not be possible. Thanks to Houston Volunteer Lawyers for this resource.
