Cameron County Probate Attorney

Utilizing A Cameron County Probate Attorney

In Texas, the probate process is the legal system by which the court oversees the estate of a person who has died. A Cameron County probate attorney can be of service when it comes to this system in which the court recognizes the death, validates a Last Will and Testament, and administer the estate after debts and taxes are resolved.

If the decedent has a Will, and that Will is uncontested, the legal process can be fairly smooth. When there is a contested Will or none at all, it becomes more complicated and frustrating for loved ones. In either case, there are specific requirements, including legal documents being filed and court hearings attended, that a Cameron County probate attorney will have the experience to handle.

Probate Lawyer Services Available

A Cameron County probate attorney’s experience doesn’t cover just the legal process after someone passes away. Drawing up a Will or addressing issues of guardianship, conservatorship, property rights and more all fall within the realm of a probate lawyers’ knowledge.

Additionally, within the probate process there are many steps in which having a Cameron County probate attorney will be a valuable resource, including:

  • Filing and validating a Will with the court.
  • Providing proof of death.
  • Listing and appraising property (real and personal) owned by the decedent.
  • Notifying creditors of the estate.
  • Attending court hearings.

These are steps that must be followed even when a Will is uncontested. When someone does contest the Will or there is no Will present, the court will hear arguments from a Cameron County probate attorney and look at intestacy laws to determine the distribution of assets.
