The favour with which this court has always viewed family comparisons has been so often and so well established that it is not necessary to list their decisions and citations. However, the question that arises when the interests of family members who have agreed to withhold a will from the estate are contrary to the interests of a designated executor who insists on the conditional release of a will has not been taken into consideration by this court. There is a minority rule in some jurisdictions, particularly in Wisconsin (Graef v. Kanouse, 205 Wis. 597, 238 N.W. 377), Connecticut (Tator v. Valden, 124 Conn. 96, 198 A. 169, 117 A.L.R.
1243) and North Carolina (In re Will of Pendergrass, 251 N.C 737, 112 p.E.2d 562.) where agreements have been cancelled, because they are contrary to public order. If you`re in the mess of a contest in your will or your family agrees that the distribution of your loved one`s estate is different, call our company and see if a family comparison agreement is something you might need! Family comparison agreements can be entered into in situations where there is no will or will. If there is a will and people who take under the will agree that the distributions should be different, contrary to what the will says, they can enter into a family comparison agreement. Or if there is no will, the rightful heirs may, under texas laws, enter into an agreement to distribute ownership differently than what Intestacy laws require. . . .
