Some Texas Right of Survivorship forms are readily available online. We don’t need to remind you because you’ve probably spent an hour trying to find “the right form”. There is currently no single fill-in-the-blank Texas Right of Survivorship form that covers everything. You’ll need to hire an attorney to draft a thorough agreement that covers all assets and properties you and your spouse or significant other might own.
On November 3, 1987, Texas voters approved an amendment to Article 16, Section 15, of the Texas Constitution. The amendment states, “. . . and spouses may agree in writing that all or part of their community property becomes the property of the surviving spouse on the death of a spouse. This amendment now allows spouses to create a right of survivorship in community property.
