What is Dependent Administration?

Dependent Administration, Probate administration or estate administration is the process of terminating the deceased person’s legal affairs.  This is often called "administration" or simply "probate," and applicable Texas law requires the administrator or administratrix to (a) locate and value the deceased person’s assets; (b) prepare an inventory listing those assets (which must will be filed with the court and approved or disapproved by the court); (c) pay debts, expenses of administration, and taxes; and (d) distribute all remaining assets to the beneficiaries or devisees named in the deceased person’s will.

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