Ensuring Your Loved Ones Are Protected

If you are the executor or administrator of the decedent’s will, you play an important role in this process. There are many things that must be done, and we are here to help you through it. First, we will help you collect an inventory of all assets. Then, we can assist you in decisions to pay or settle debts that are remaining. After that, there are taxes that must be paid. Finally, all assets can be distributed to the appropriate parties. It is easy to be overwhelmed, and we are here to guide and assist you.

Probate is another process that must be followed in Texas. Essentially, a court must determine that the will that was left is valid. They do this in a few different ways. A judge will make sure that it was signed by the deceased. There must also be two credible witnesses, and it also has to be signed by witnesses in the presence of the decedent. If there is any dispute that these rules weren’t followed, the court can and will delay the process.
