Hidalgo County Probate Attorney

Hidalgo County Probate Attorney Information & Services

Hidalgo County probate attorneys can provide valuable assistance to clients in some of the most difficult times — after the death of a loved one. Probate attorneys are legal professionals who make sure the deceased’s assets go to the right places. Immediately after a person dies in Hidalgo County, their assets and any liabilities they have, are compiled into an estate.

If a person dies without a Will, distribution of their assets can be tricky if multiple people make claims for them. If a person believes he or she should be receiving certain assets, a Hidalgo County probate attorney will fight for their client’s rights in Texas probate court. In situations where there is no Will, probate courts rely on probate attorneys and intestacy laws to ascertain how the decedent’s assets should be apportioned.

Probate Attorney Services

After a person has passed away, there are many detailed steps that must legally be taken in the process of probate. A Hidalgo County probate attorney can help in each of these steps, for example:

  • Tracking down all of the assets people own and placing a value on them.
  • Filing paperwork (including proof of death) with the court.
  • Attending court appearances during the probate process.
  • Providing notification to creditors of the decedent.

In addition to these services, a Hidalgo County probate attorney can assist in issues of estate planning while a person is still living. Drawing up a Will, setting up guardianships/conservatorships, legally transferring property, and answering questions about estate taxes and fees are all areas in which the assistance of a legal professional is a valuable asset.
