Information And Services For Grimes County Probate Attorney
A Grimes County probate attorney handles legal matters regarding distributing assets and liabilities in a deceased person’s estate. Settling the estate of a person who has died involves verifying legal documents, including the Last will and Testament, while adhering to the statutes in Texas Law.
When a loved one dies, the Will that they leave behind is a record of their final wishes in how assets should be distributed amongst family members. The Will, if one exists, goes to a Texas probate court where the distribution of assets and payment of debts are overseen. The process is more complex when the decedent did not have a Will. A Grimes County probate attorney can assist throughout the process, even filing the paperwork and attending court hearing on behalf of beneficiaries.
How Does A Grimes County Probate Attorney Help You?
Your Grimes County probate attorney is able to file all paperwork in the probate process, including proof of the decedent’s death; notify all of the creditors of the estate; answer questions regarding federal and state tax implications; and inventory and appraise the estate assets.
A Grimes County probate attorney can also be a valuable asset before someone has passed on by ensuring that a valid Will is drawn up, assisting with estate planning, setting up guardianships and legally transferring property. It is a sad truth that there are people who would take advantage of a loved one’s death. Consulting an attorney about setting up your estate will ensure that your assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes.
