Comal County Probate Attorney
Should I Hire A Comal County Probate Attorney?
In the days and weeks after the death of a loved one, the services of a Comal County probate attorney can be an enormous asset. Dealing with the estate of your loved one can be time consuming and emotional, and there are likely going to be many legal questions. What paperwork do you file? Do you have to go to court? What if the decedent did not have a Will in place?
In the Texas probate system, the assets and liabilities of the decedent are put into an estate to be overseen by the courts. Even when a Last Will and Testament is present and uncontested, there are specific steps that are required by law before the estate is finalized. A Comal County probate attorney can help guide you through the process, be your advocate in probate court and answer any questions related to the process.
What Services Can I Turn To A Probate Attorney For?
In addition to dealing with matters of probate after the death of a family member or friend, a Comal County probate attorney can provide services in the following areas:
- Inheritance law issues
- Estate taxes
- Property rights/transfers
Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, a Comal County probate attorney can assist with many of the legal steps in the probate process, including: filing required paperwork; providing the court with proof of death; representing beneficiaries in the probate process; notifying creditors of the estate; and inventorying and appraising the estate assets. Navigating these steps requires detailed knowledge of probate law, which an attorney experienced in these matters will have.
It is an unfortunate truth that when a loved one dies, there are sometimes people who will try to take advantage of the situation. Hiring a Comal County probate attorney can help protect the rights of beneficiaries and ensure the wishes of the decedent are adhered to.
