    Default Holding Durable Power of Attorney and Witnessing a Will

    My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Texas, Harris County.

    I need to find a free form of a Durable Power of Attorney for my Mother.

    Also, is it legal for my Husband to sign her Will and Durable POA as Witness?

    Thank you.

    Default Re: Durable Power of Attorney

    The Texas DPOA statute contains a statutory power of attorney:

    I don't see a requirement that the DPOA be witnessed. But it does have to be notarized.

    I don't find anything that would prohibit your spouse from being a witness to your Mother's will. But, it might be better to have completely disinterested witnesses.
