If your loved one or family member recently died, you may have specific legal obligations and rights, there might be several options to go through probate.

The process highly depends on the circumstances surrounding a decedent at the time that they passed away. The presence or absence of a Will, the interpersonal relationships of the people left behind, and the complexity of the estate all define how the probate process looks and feels.

In some cases, the probate process under Texas law will require proving that a Last Will and Testament is valid or maybe that it should be contested, disputed and invalidated.

In cases without a Last Will and Testament, the probate process requires that a decedent’s legal heirs are identified before and orderly and legal transfer of property from a decedent to the heir(s) can occur.

The end goal of probate is always the same: Wrapping up of decedent’s final affairs, paying their outstanding bills and debts if any, and distribute the remaining assets out of their estate.
