Duval County Probate Attorney
Obtaining The Services Of A Duval County Probate Attorney
If your loved one has died, the last thing on your mind should be legal paperwork and attending court. Consulting a Duval County probate attorney is the first step to removing the frustration of the Texas probate process and resolving your friend or family member’s estate. If you aren’t familiar with probate, it is the process by which the assets and liabilities of decedent are placed into an estate to be overseen and administered by a Texas court. If a Will is present, then the distribution will follow the decedent’s final wishes. If there is no Will or there are problems with the Will, then the court will distribute assets in accordance with intestacy laws and the petitions of a Duval County probate attorney. In either case, there are specific legal tasks required in the process that an attorney can help with.
