Do I Need A Kleberg County Probate Attorney?
When a person dies, a probate court administers their estate, the collection of their assets and liabilities. If the deceased did not leave a Last Will and Testament, the court will hear from a Kleberg County probate attorney, and then determine how best to distribute the assets, in accordance with intestacy laws.
Even if the deceased did have a Will, it is still recommended that the services of a Kleberg County probate attorney be acquired. The court is required to check the validity of the will, and this process can be arduous, as appropriate laws are intricate.

When there is no Will, a Kleberg County Probate Attorney is vital to insure that you are getting the best advice. For surviving family members, navigating Texas probate proceedings can be difficult, and having an attorney to assist in understanding the requirements will make the process go as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Even when a Will is present, a Kleberg County Probate Attorney is advisable. An attorney would be able to assist in the following necessary steps:
- File all necessary paperwork.
- Handle matters regarding federal and state taxes.
- Provide proof required by the court to validate death.
- Appraise and Catalog estate assets.
- Notify creditors of the estate. And, perhaps most importantly,
- Ensure you are well represented at all court appearances.
Each of these tasks require knowledge of the probate process and all related laws to be done properly, and even then can be quite time consuming. A Kleberg County probate attorney will be able to not only make sure that every step is handled properly, but that no parties are taking advantage of either a loved one’s death, or a family’s grief. A probate attorney can help make sure the deceased’s final wishes are honored, help to transfer real estate, or personal property, answer questions involving guardianship, conservatorships, property rights, inheritance law, and all other associated issues.
