Blanco County Probate Attorney

How Can a Blanco County Probate Attorney Help Me?

When a loved one dies, the last thing anyone wants to think about are legal issues. A Blanco County probate attorney can help make this time easier by providing advice and legal assistance during the probate process. Probate is the process by which the decedent’s debts and assets are resolved. The process is overseen by a Texas probate court. A Blanco County probate attorney is trained, specifically, to deal with the ins-and-outs of wills and the dividing of assets, as well as other areas involving property rights and inheritance law.

Probate Attorney: Services, Specialties and Legal Expertise

A Blanco County probate attorney can serve clients with a variety of needs. First and foremost, probate attorney can help legally draw up a Last Will and Testament. This document is legally binding and outlines the way in which the assets of the departed will be divided among heirs and family members. For example, in some situations, a person will wish to will their real estate to one individual and their monetary accounts to another; a Blanco County probate attorney can ensure those wishes are known and that the paperwork is legally binding.

A Blanco County probate attorney can help clients in a variety of other ways; for example, a probate attorney can be employed by an individual who believes a Will should be deemed invalid. This situation may occur for a multitude of reasons, but one common example is if a person was not of sound mind and body when the Will was drawn up. When there is no Will on record, a probate lawyer can help argue before the court on how assets should be divided. A probate lawyer can be of assistance in matters involving guardianships, conservatorships, property rights, estate taxes (federal and state) and more.

When it comes to resolving a loved one’s estate, there are many steps that must be taken. Some of these steps include:

  • Providing proof of death to the court.
  • Inventorying and appraising assets.
  • Notifying creditors of the death.
  • Filing paperwork with the court.
  • Attending mandatory court appearances.
