Kendall County Probate Attorney

Kendall County Probate Attorney Services & Information

When a relative or someone close to you passes away, a Kendall County probate attorney can help you navigate through all of the legal aspects of this difficult time. If the deceased person left a Last Will and Testament, the probate court will ensure that it is valid and that the decedent’s estate (which is all of the person’s assets and liabilities at the time of their death) is dealt with according to his or her wishes.

If the decedent did not leave behind a Last Will and Testament, the situation becomes a bit more complex. It will be left up to the probate court to distribute the decedent’s assets, in accordance with Texas’ intestacy statutes. These statutes provide a rigid formula regarding who inherits what, and several issues could arise if this is disputed between heirs. A Kendall County probate attorney can guide you through the probate process and can also make appearances and arguments before the probate court.

What Services Can a Kendall County Probate Attorney Provide?

In addition to providing representation at all required court appearances, your Kendall County probate attorney will provide and assist in filling out all of the legal paperwork, regardless of whether or not the decedent left a Will. He or she will then ensure that the paperwork is filed in a timely fashion.

A probate attorney can also help you to compile a list of the decedent’s assets and to appraise their worth. This information can be time consuming to gather, but it must be provided during probate proceedings. The attorney will also notify any of the decedent’s creditors of the existence of the estate, so that his or her debts may be settled and the rest of the assets distributed according to the Last Will and Testament or intestacy laws. Finally, a probate attorney can inform you of any federal or state taxes that will apply to a loved one’s estate.

Additional services a Kendall County probate attorney can provide include estate planning, setting up guardianships, drawing up Wills, answering questions regarding inheritance law and estate taxes, and legally transferring property.
