Experienced Guidance Through The Probate Process

Even if a loved one died with a well-written estate plan, most Texas estates still need to go through probate. The existence of a thorough estate plan makes everything easier, but you’ll nonetheless want to work with a skilled attorney if you’ve been named as the executor of the estate.

In a nutshell, the probate process includes:

  • Filing a probate application and other paperwork with the court
  • Identifying and collecting all estate property and assets
  • Using estate assets to pay the decedent’s final bills and creditors (or contesting creditor claims, if necessary)
  • Distributing assets to heirs and beneficiaries, according to the will (or state law if no will exists)
  • Resolving any estate-related disputes

Probating an estate is often a lengthy and involved process. If you’re not an attorney, you are likely to find the duties of an executor to be complicated and time-consuming. By hiring a knowledgeable attorney like Mr. Garcia, you can be sure that the process runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible, leaving you free to focus on other important matters.
