Fort Worth Probate Lawyers
What Is Probate in Texas?
When someone passes away and leaves behind an estate and a will, division of the deceased’s property should be fairly straightforward. However, that does not mean the court system will not get involved. In many instances where a will is the primary document outlining how an estate will be divided, that estate must enter the probate process.
Probate is the legal process that handles the will and takes care of the individual’s last affairs, distributing property and paying down debts. This process requires a significant amount of paperwork and a lengthy time in court. Without the help of a skilled probate attorney, those beneficiaries named in the will could lose some of the assets or property they should receive to the court costs associated with this process.
