  I’ve Had My Will Prepared, Now Where Shall I Keep It?
NBy Kathleen Cassidy Goodman, PLLC
There are other options. You could place your Will in a safe deposit box with a financial institution. Depending on the degree of trust you have with your Executor, you may want to give your Executor the right to access your safe deposit box in your lease. If your Executor is not on your lease, then a spouse, parent, or adult descendant may request the financial institution allow them to examine the contents to look for the Will. If all else fails, then your Executor may obtain a Court order to examine the contents of the safe deposit box.
A less expensive and more common method is to place your Will in your safe. Some individuals use their gun safe which is a good place, as well. Storing your Will in a fire-proof box is good choice. Most importantly, make sure you tell your Executor where to find your Will regardless of where you decide to store it.

 ow that you finally “bit the bullet” and had your Will prepared, where is the best place to keep
it? Under Texas law, absent extraordinary circumstances, in order to probate your Will the Court will need your Original Will and not a copy. This means you need to keep your Original Will in a safe place – but not too safe. Your family or your Executor needs to be able to locate your Original Will in order to probate your estate.
The safest place to store your Will is undoubtably to place your Will in safekeeping with the local Probate Court. However, the downside is that if you want to change your Will, you need to go in person to the Court, present your identification, and request the Will. If you anticipate making changes to your Will, it is not recommended that you place your Will in safekeeping with the Court.
However, it is highly recommend that you do put your Will in safekeeping with the Court if you are excluding a family member who may have access to your home. In the event the excluded family member comes to visit, this family member may discover your Will, destroy it, and receive a share of your estate under the Texas intestacy laws.

         F amilies are still looking for safe ways for young people to enjoy everyday activities, which include
gatherings and holidays like Halloween.
• Mask-wearing protocols were lifted in much of the country or considered voluntary by early summer. However, individuals should still think carefully about donning a mask. This is particularly true when indoors in public or in outdoor areas with crowds and in areas of potentially high transmission.
• Do much of your celebrating outdoors, as transmission of any virus is largely mitigated by being outside with more space between people and lots of fresh air flowing. Skip
indoor parties and stick to trick-or-treating only.
• Reduce the spread of germs by placing individually wrapped treats on a table for trick-or-treaters to grab themselves. Contact by directly handing candy to children could needlessly increase the risk of transmission. • Make a paper or fabric mask part of the costume, ensuring it covers the nose and mouth.
• Consider a reverse Halloween setup wherein costumed children stand in their own yards and neighborhood participants drive around tossing candy to them on the lawn.
