Administrator


What is a probate Administrator?

An administrator is a man appointed by a court with probate jurisdiction to manage the estate of a person (a) who died without a will (that is, "intestate," or "without a will"; or (b) who died with a will but the will failed to name an executor; or (c) the will failed to name a successor executor and the primary executor has died, or refuses to serve, or has been removed by the court.

Applicable law and the probate court judge will almost always require that the administrator post (that is, file) an acceptable bond normally issued by an insurance company to protect the estate from mismanagement or wrongdoing.

If the deceased person owned land or a home in state other than Texas, then someone must manage and probate the assets located in that state, and a man who serves in this capacity is often called an "ancillary administrator."

The word "dependent" denotes that all of the appointed administratorís actions are directed and supervised by the probate court in accordance with applicable Texas law.
