Dying Without a Will

There are many probate procedures in Texas which are available if the loved one died without a will. Depending on the circumstances (for example, size of the estate, number of heirs, and unpaid debts), a dependent administration (administration of the estate will be “dependent” on probate court supervision); along with the dependent administration, the probate court will require a hearing to determine heirship; or an affidavit of heirship may be appropriate under certain circumstances; or if there is a will, but it does not provide for an “independent” executor or is deficient in some other manner, the will may still be probated utilizing a provision of Section 145 of the Texas Probate Code; or a small estate affidavit may be suitable under the circumstances.

But it is a fair conclusion that the probate and administration of an estate normally becomes more time consuming, complex, and expensive when the loved one died without a will or without a revocable living trust.
