Bastrop County Probate Attorney

How Will A Bastrop County Probate Attorney Help Me?

The time after a loved one’s death can be emotional and confusing.  The services of a Bastrop County probate attorney, while not required under the law, are nonetheless vital in wrapping up issues pertaining to the decedent’s finances and property.  How are assets distributed?  Who pays the decedent’s outstanding debts?  What if there is no will?  Under the Texas probate process, the assets and debts of a person who has died are placed into an estate, which is then overseen by a probate court.  When a will exists, the court ensures that assets are distributed according to the decedent’s wishes.  With no will, matters are more complicated.  Intestacy laws and arguments of a Bastrop County probate attorney will play a role in how the estate is divvied up. In either case, there are some necessary court appearances and required paperwork after a person has died — the process can be time consuming and difficult to understand if you are not experienced in this area of the law.
