Deathbed marriages in Texas

What are deathbed marriages in Texas

Deathbed or predatory marriages are when a caregiver for an elderly person, by hook or by crook, marries the elderly person. I have written about those situations on my blog. The marriage is not based on the love and affection two people have for each other but is based on the caregiver's greed. The caregiver is trying to loot the estate of the elderly person.

What can be done about deathebed marriages in Texas

Sometimes the family is not aware

that the caregiver has married their elderly relative until the relative dies. Texas has a statute that deals with these situations. TEC §123.102. However, the family must act quickly. If a procedding to annul the marriage must be commenced within one year after death. Additionally, the marriage must be less than three years old at time of death.
