If someone that died had given my daughter a piece of paper

Customer Question

If someone that died had given my daughter a piece of paper signed and dated with their signature, that had said they wanted her to have 25% of their estate, but later wrote out a will, would she still have any legal rights in the state of Louisiana.

Has either document been submitted for probate?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Loren replied 1 year ago.

The legal effect of a subsequent will is to revoke all prior wills. Therefore, even if the document given to your daughter qualified as a will, the later will, if validly prepared and executed, would have revoked your daughter's.
