Gonzales County Probate Attorney

What Does A Gonzales County Probate Attorney Do?

Texas probate is the process by which a Will is validated and the estate of the decedent legally administered. A Gonzales County probate attorney is the person to turn to when drawing up a Will or to guide you through the probate process when a loved one has died. A Gonzales County probate attorney can also be of service regarding inheritance laws, property rights and legal transfers or property, setting up guardianships and answering questions about estate planning and taxes.

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.
