Do You Need an Attorney to Probate a Will in Texas?

Coping with the loss of a loved one can be absolutely overwhelming. And walking through the probate process for most is uncharted territory. Questions like "why do I have to probate the will?" are often raised, or "why do I need an attorney, I have the will, can't I just show it to whoever wants to look at it?" At an already trying time the process of navigating the Texas Probate Courts can be a burden that a qualified Texas probate attorney can take off of your shoulders.

While collecting non-probate assets may be relatively straight forward (for example, life insurance policies, or bank accounts where beneficiaries have been designated), transferring ownership or obtaining title to real estate, homes, or personal property is not automatic in Texas. And county clerks will not offer legal advice on how to navigate through the Texas probate court system. But I can provide to you both assurance and legal counsel during this most difficult time to minimize your grief and guide you through the probate process.

Knowing Texas Probate Law is the key

Probate in Texas has a reputation as being complicated, time consuming, and an expensive proposition. To some extent it can be all of these things (especially in the absence of a will or a revocable living trust), but with some basic advance estate planning and proper handling, these drawbacks can all be significantly minimized. Please contact me for all of your probate questions, I would like to help you. Call my direct line: 281.807.9200, or contact me by email.
