Is this a valid will for House of Yahweh leader? Yisrayl Hawkins leaves behind 30+ kids, 200 properties, $5 million in assets

WillsControversial religious leader, Yisrayl Abel Hawkins, who lead the House of Yahweh, left behind what applicants are claiming is a holographic will. A Callahan County, Texas court is set to decide if the will is valid and can proceed through probate.

In the State of Texas, a holographic will must been signed by the deceased and is written in entirely their own handwriting. The will in question was created by Hawkins in 2008, thirteen years prior to his passing.

If a will does not meet the criteria to be a holographic will, then it must be signed by two witnesses. Objectors to this will, say that only one notary signed the will, therefore unable to meet this requirement.

During Thursday’s hearing, it was determined that there is still too much unknown about this will to make a decision regarding probate. The next hearing will determine the validity of the will. At this time, no date has been set.
