Probate Attorneys in Texas
A Gonzales County probate attorney can help make the court process smoother for Texas residents after the death of a loved one. They, on behalf of their clients, can do the following:
- File all of the paperwork needed to probate the decedent’s Last Will and Testament.
- Gather and file with the court the necessary documents to prove that the deceased has passed away.
- Represent their client in all court proceedings related to the process.
- Provide notification to all creditors of the estate.
- Inventory any of the deceased assets and have them appraised.
In cases where the deceased did not have a formal Will drawn up, a Gonzales County probate attorney will be able to argue in court on behalf of the decedent’s loved ones concerning how property should be apportioned. The court will consider a probate lawyer’s arguments as well as intestacy laws when determining the best distribution of assets. A Gonzalez County probate attorney can also help beneficiaries contest the Will if there are concerns about its validity.
