What Does An Edwards County Probate Attorney Do?
When it comes to matters of probate, an Edwards County probate attorney can be a great source of legal advice and provide many different services. In Texas, probate is the process by which the assets and debts of a person who has died are placed in an estate to be administered by the court. Retaining the services of a probate lawyer during this process is advisable, but there are many other areas in which they can be valuable. An Edwards County probate attorney can provide legal assistance in all matters relating to inheritance law, drawing up a Last Will and Testament, setting up guardianships and conservatorships, legally transferring property or answering questions regarding property rights, and advise you on matters of estate taxes and probate fees.
Why Do I Need A Lawyer For Probate?
The probate process requires certain steps that an Edwards County probate attorney will be knowledgeable in. After the death of a loved one, your attorney can:
- Provide the court with proof of death, as required.
- File necessary paperwork.
- Represent you in court appearances.
- Inform any creditors of the decedent’s death.
- Catalogue and appraise the assets of the estate.
Many of these steps can be time consuming and complicated. In the time of grief after a friend or family member’s death, they can be overwhelming. It becomes even more so when there are issues with a Will being contested or the executor not fulfilling his/her duties responsibly. An Edwards County probate attorney can help alleviate that stress and argue on your behalf to achieve a successful resolution of the estate.
