How A Kinney County Probate Attorney Can Help You

A Kinney County probate can help people who are going through the probate process after the death of a loved one. The process can be long and complex, so it is important for people to understand what probate is and why they might need a probate attorney. Texas probate is the process of resolving the estate of a deceased individual. In most situations, people who die leave behind a Last Will and Testament. Most people have an estate which consists of their assets and debts, which need to be handled before any beneficiaries can receive any money or assets.

Services of a Kinney County Probate Attorney

When probate is opened after the death of a loved one, an executor of the estate is named. This is someone who has to work with the courts to pay any existing creditors and divide the remaining assets according to the Will.

A Kinney County probate attorney can help to guide people through the process. A probate lawyer will provide the following services: representation at all court dates; notify creditors of the status of the estate; appraise and catalog all of the estate’s assets and liabilities; file the necessary death certificate and documents in court; and notify all parties involving any court proceedings that will take place.

Texas probate law can be hard to understand, which is why having legal representation is crucial to resolving the estate as quickly as possible. An experienced Kinney County probate attorney can make the process much more efficient so that the beneficiaries can move on with their lives and be satisfied with the end result. A probate attorney can also assist before the probate process through estate planning, setting up guardianships, drawing up Wills and assisting with the legal transferring of property.
