Texas law requires most probate matters to be handled by an attorney licensed to practice in Texas. The probate process can be extremely time consuming for a family member to tackle alone. If your loved one passed away without a will in place, you may run into even more problems.
What Can You Expect From the Probate Process?
After a person passes away, their surviving family and relatives are left with the daunting task of sorting out their financial and legal affairs. This involves creating an inventory of all the estate assets, as well as paying off remaining debts and distributing assets and property according to the terms of the will.
If the deceased party doesn't have a will, then the probate court will use the law to determine who is entitled to administer the estate. If you aren’t familiar with the various tasks involved with executing a will or managing probate, here just a few of the most common tasks probate attorneys manage.
- Working with insurance companies
- Managing estate assets
- Securing real estate and property appraisals
- Executing and facilitating the payment of decedents debts
- Preparing required probate documents
- Calculating and paying any estate or inheritance taxes
- Handling tax issues
- Transferring assets to beneficiaries
