Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. Can parent go ahead and sign her house over to her 4 kids now so that when she passess, will won't have to be probated
A: The answer to your question is Yes. However, transferring the home now will cause income tax implications for the recipients because the house is being given as a gift and is likely more than the gift tax exclusion amount. But that will depend on the value of the house at the time of the transfer. There are other ways to transfer the home without probating a will. Some that are unique to Texas and Florida (I think its Florida). Find a lawyer near you to discuss the options currently available. Many attorneys offer free consultations. Even if it has to go through probate, Texas probate with a Will is not a difficult and expensive proposition as it is in many other states. I know "expensive" is relative, but spending a little time and money now to understand your options, and planning ahead will save you a bundle of time and expense after its to late to make changes.
Q. Have copy "Last Will and Testament" that deceased gave me. A few days before passing his brother had it re-done
A: The deceased could have made up his mind to change his will at any time, and had a lawyer that he trusted redo it or make an amendment. If you believe it was done under duress, undue influence, or if the deceased wasn't of sound mind and memory at the time the will was updated, you can challenge the terms of the new will on those facts. Your situation is very fact specific to try to answer without more details. I would recommend contacting a probate attorney near you if you feel there is enough to challenge the new will.
