Frio County Probate Attorney

What Does A Frio County Probate Attorney Do?

Probate is the legal proceeding concerning the estate of a deceased person. A Frio County probate attorney can represent their clients during this process. In probate, all claims and disbursing will be decided on according to the Will of the deceased person. Ownership of property, personal assets and other financial and non-financial assets are all legally delegated during the probate process. During the Texas probate process, the Will is verified to be valid and assets are distributed accordingly. When the decedent did not have a Will, or the Will is contested, the court will distribute assets according to intestacy laws and the arguments of a Frio County probate attorney.
