Probate

Probate in Brazos County and surrounding counties

Losing a relative is one of the most trying circumstances to endure in our lives.  Probate is the court process by which the assets of the deceased are distributed.  This is done either by a Will, where the deceased designated how the assets would be distributed, or by the intestate laws of the state of Texas.  Either way, the assets need to be appropriately distributed.

Depending on the size and complexities of an estate, differing procedures with a Will may be appropriate, such as:

  • Probate of a Will and Appointment of an Independent or Dependent Executor
  • Probate of a Will and Appointment of an Independent or Dependent Administrator with Will Annexed
  • Probate of a Will as a Muniment of Title
  • Probate of a Will and Order of No Administration

 

Likewise, differing procedures in an estate where no Will exists may be appropriate, such as:

  • Small estate affidavit
  • Declaration of Heirship
  • Affidavit of Heirship
  • Family Settlement Agreement

 

Also, special circumstances can exist where a Will has been lost or the Will is offered more than four years after death.
