Services & Information Regarding Dimmit County Probate Attorneys
In the event that you have not experienced the death of a loved one before, you may be entirely unfamiliar with the process of Texas probate. Consulting a Dimmit County probate attorney can be a great help in understanding the process and getting guidance through it.
What is probate? In Texas, probate is the system by which a decedent’s assets and debts are but put into an estate to be resolved through the court system. When there is a Last Will & Testament on record and uncontested, the debts of the estate will be paid and the assets distributed per the decedent’s final wishes. If there is no Will or it is contested, the probate court will follow intestacy laws and hear the arguments of a Dimmit County probate attorney when determining how the estate will be distributed.
