Working With An Experienced, Compassionate Texas Probate Lawyer Makes A Difficult Time Easier.

Not every estate has to go through probate, but if no comprehensive estate plan existed – even if the deceased person left a will behind – probate will likely have to happen before the estate can be “settled” (i.e., before the decedent’s heirs can receive their inheritance, before the decedent’s house can be renovated and sold, etc.). There are many different moving parts in probate. There are deadlines. There’s a lot of paperwork. There might be conflict among family members, especially if there was no will or the will was unclear. There are creditors who need to be paid. If you have been named as the personal representative tasked with handling the process, any mistakes or missteps made along the way can prolong a resolution or even result in your personal liability
