Do I Need a Harris County Probate Attorney?

Has an individual within your family passed away in Harris County and you’ll need assistance to make sure that the estate is administered properly? Are you currently concerned that somebody could possibly be taking advantage of your loved one’s death?

First Steps to Probate a Will in Harris County

The first step to probating an estate is finding out if the estate should be probated at all in Harris County. Probate administration is the process by which a court oversees the payment of a deceased person’s debts along with the distribution of his / her assets. The administration of estates can be complex, include fiduciary duties, and present the potential for mismanagement and/or abuse of funds.

It is best to be represented by a Harris County Probate Attorney who understands the probate procedures and rules. In order to effectively and efficiently guide you through a probate proceeding, the Texas probate attorney must have an excellent understanding of Texas probate and federal tax laws.

A probate attorney can help with items such as:
