It's impossible to answer this question without reviewing the wills You would be wise to schedule a visit with a Texas probate lawyer.
Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services. My Avvo posts are based on limited information provided and are not intended as conclusive legal advice.
They are outdated. It is unlikely a NC Will, a common law state,has the provisions required in a community property estate like Texas. Does it provide for independent administration? Does it have a self-proving affidavit? Does it provide asset protect for spouse and for children? Do your family a favor and update your estate plan with a comprehensive Texas Will. Or better yet with a funded revocable trust and a pour over Will. Hire an experienced Texas estate planning attorney.
It would be a very good idea to update your Wills so they conform to Texas law of today. There are numerous problems that your heirs could face probating a 21 year old will from another state. A new will resolves those issues. It is easy to do.
