About this Self-Proving Affidavit Form: Although a Self-Proving Affidavit is not a requirement
in the State of Texas, it is an excellent idea to sign one when executing a Will. It can greatly
reduce the difficulty associated with probating the Will when the time comes. The testator, along
with two witnesses, must sign the Affidavit together in the presence of a notary public. The
Affidavit is then attached to the Will. Its basic purpose is to affirm that the Will is that of the
testator and that the will was signed and witnessed in accordance with all applicable state
requirements.
To make a self-proving Will, a testator should follow this procedure: (1) The testator should
sign the Will in the presence of the witnesses and have the witnesses sign as well; (2) A notary
public should be present at the time the Will is signed by the testator, together with all the
witnesses; (3) The testator should provide the blank Self-Proving Affidavit form below to the
notary public, or the testator should consult with the notary public to determine if a different Self-
Proving Affidavit form is recommended; (4) The testator and witnesses should complete the Self-
Proving Affidavit form in the presence of the notary public. The notary public will require the
testator and witnesses to swear to the Self-Proving Affidavit's truth and may require that photo
identification is presented; (5) Once completed, the Self-Proving Affidavit should be stapled to the
Will.
