Probating the will of a living person is sometimes referred to as “ante-mortem probate.” Such actions are not allowed in Texas. Section 72 of the Probate Code says that probate of a will or administration of an estate of a living person is void. Therefore, a Texas court does not have jurisdiction to rule on the contest of a will or to administer the estate of a living person.
