Milam County Probate Attorney
How A Milam County Probate Attorney Can Help You
After a person’s death, a course of legal action must be taken to transfer their legal property and personal effects to their heirs and take care of any liabilities, a process known as probate. A Milam County Probate Attorney can guide you through the details and represent you during any court appearances.
When a person has not left a Last Will and Testament, they are said to have died intestate. In this case, the court will appoint an administrator of the estate. If the decedent did leave a Last Will and Testament, an executor is usually named in the Will. In either instance, a probate attorney can make sure the procedure is done correctly and as painlessly as possible.
