    Answered . You can buy those forms at your local office supply store. Though, this is not recommended because those forms tend to be overly general, ignore specific circumstances and can have confusing instructions. Plus, they do not constitute legal advice.

Just search for attorneys here on Avvo, through the State Bar of Texas, and local bar associations and start calling them to get prices. Because everyone's circumstances do not fit neatly into a cookie-cutter form, you should really go to an estate planning attorney.
