The Texas probate process is generally straight-forward. The executor, with the assistance of a Dallas family law attorney, files an Application for Probate along with the Will with the probate court which then appoints the executor who handles the estate. The executor has the authority to act in place of the decedent. At Darrett & Associates, P.C., we have handled numerous probate cases and are prepared to guide you through the process, take care of all court filings, and generally smooth the probate process for the executor.
Once the executor has been officially appointed by the court, the executor and probate attorney publish a notice to creditors regarding the administration of the estate. The duties of the executor include preparing an inventory of assets and liabilities which is filed with the court, selling the assets, paying off the debts, and distributing the estate to the beneficiaries in accordance with the will. Our legal team will assist the executor and oversee that proper accounting is done and all tax returns and taxes are correctly paid.
However, a hiccup can occur in the Texas probate process, if the decedent passes without a will. We at DARRETT & ASSOCIATES PC, can help by making the complicated simple!
