Guadalupe County Probate Attorney: Information And Services

A probate is the first part of the process when honoring the last wishes of someone who is deceased. It includes distributing property and dealing with any claims that need to be resolved regarding the decedent’s estate, which can be a confusing process without the assistance of a Guadalupe County probate attorney. During probate, the executor of the Will is appointed. Once a will goes into probate, it becomes a legal document enforced by the executor and can also be enforced by the court if necessary. If there is no Will, or the estate is contested, a Guadalupe County probate attorney is highly recommended to smooth the process of settling the estate. These legal professionals can help guide the heirs of the estate through the process and help the court settle any questions that arise.
