Brooks County Probate Attorney

What Functions Does A Brooks County Probate Attorney Perform?

A Brooks County Probate attorney can be an excellent source of information and assistance when a loved one dies. The Texas probate process requires specific steps in the resolving of an estate, even if a will is in place, that can be confusing to those without experience in the system. If the estate is in dispute, the probate process will become even more complicated. A person, even the client, might contest the will, or believe that the executor of the estate isn’t performing his or her duties properly or that the beneficiaries and inheritors in the person’s will have no standing. A Brooks County probate attorney will be able to advise and represent you in these matters. A probate lawyer can also help with estate planning and setting up a power of attorney before death. This is important because it might help the client avoid probate after the decedent’s death.

Services Of A Probate Lawyer in Brooks County

In the Texas probate procedure, the beneficiaries will need to fill out an application to have the decedent’s will probated. He or she will have to attend court, present the will to the court, have notice of the decedent’s death published, send letters to his or her creditors, send notices to the beneficiaries and have the decedent’s assets appraised and inventoried. These are the required steps even when the Last Will and Testament is present and uncontested. A Brooks County probate attorney will be able to handle these tasks on behalf of beneficiaries, thus removing some of the stress and confusion after the death of a loved one.

When there is no will, or a will is contested, a Brooks County probate attorney’s services are even more important. There are several grounds for a client to contest a will. He or she may believe the will has been forged or the decedent was pressured into signing or making changes to the will when they were not capable of thinking rationally. The will might seem to have been badly drawn up or have clauses that are unclear or contradictory. Certain valuable assets may seem to have been left out of the will. The Brooks County Probate attorney can investigate these charges and argue on behalf of the beneficiaries in probate court for an equitable resolution of the estate.
