Meet Jezebel, Our First Cow Bequest
At CHA Law Group, we’ve seen divorces, surrogacies, gender corrections, adoptions, wills… you name it. But after ten plus years of practice, it is with great honor that Christine accepts her first cow bequest, and she can’t help but feel moo-ved.
Although at first sight this case may seem udderly ridiculous, Christine is determined to steer to success, despite the circumstance. Christine is determined to milk this case for valuable lessons, as this is her first cow bequest. However, it’s important that during this case, the executor knows where Jezebel is. After all, she doesn’t want her to ask, “Where’s the beef?”
Clearly, the steaks are high. This is why Christine is careful. Because pursuant to the Texas Family Code, she must gather deTAILS about Jezebel. Christine is also wary of the fact that “cow” is a specific term and has confirmed that Jezebel is indeed a cow, and not a bull, heifer, or calf.
In the midst of this case, Christine can’t help but wonder: if the cow is pregnant when the testator dies, does the gift include the unborn calf? If the cow is turned into a side of beef in the refrigerator, does the gift still hold, or is there ademption?
Christine is working very diligently on this case, and might even spend Moo Years Day working on it. She encourages you all to get your wills and bequests settled, as it’s very important to her that we keep each udder updated.
Although a cow bequest is a humorous concept, we hope that you all will not make a laughing stock out of Jezebel. Last but not least, we are super excited to be working with Jezebel, as she is outstanding in her field. – See more at: http://chalaw.com/blog/39/Meet-Jezebel-Our-First-Cow-Bequest.html#sthash.LnLkG9ew.dpuf
