Trusts vs. Wills: What Are the Differences?

While both wills and trusts serve the common purpose of appointing someone to carry out their wishes and identify beneficiaries, they function differently.


A will is a fundamental document in estate planning that outlines how your assets and property should be distributed after your passing. Our attorneys at Garza Law Firm, LLLP, can assist you in drafting a comprehensive will that reflects your wishes and complies with Texas state laws to avoid potential challenges in the future.


In contrast, a trust becomes active immediately while the writer is alive. Trusts are versatile estate planning tools that allow you to protect assets, manage wealth, and provide for beneficiaries according to your specifications. Our team specializes in creating various types of trusts, including revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, and special needs trusts, tailored to your unique financial goals and family dynamics. 

What Are the Requirements for a Will to Be Valid?

There are numerous specific requirements that must be met for a will to be considered valid in the state of Texas.

 Requirements for a will to be valid include:

  1. The person writing the will must be 18 years old or older
  2. The person writing the will must be of sound mind
  3. The will must be written voluntarily
  4. The will must be in writing
  5. The will must be signed by the writer in the presence of two witnesses
  6. The will must be signed by two witnesses

Given the complexities involved, navigating this process independently can often be confusing. This is precisely why our team of seasoned estate planning attorneys in Dallas can provide the necessary guidance and support to steer you through this intricate legal terrain.
