Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in Louisiana

If I have moved from Oregon to Louisiana and I have a will from my residency in Oregon, will I have to make another will. I'm 78 divorced with four grown daughters. One daughter is being left out of my will. Does Louisiana law automatically divide the assets four ways even if I have stipulated the assets be divided three ways.

If the will is valid under Oregon, Louisiana will recognize it as a valid will.

Unless the doughter left out of the will would qualify as a forced heir under Louisiana law (under 24 or physically or mentally disabled), she does not have the right to receive any of your assets.
