Overview of Probate in Texas

Before delving deeper into how Fiegel Law can oversee your probate case, it’s wise to have a general understanding of the probate process in Texas. Probate is the legal process after someone passes away to distribute their assets and settle any outstanding debts.

Here’s a brief overview of the probate process in Texas:

  • Filing the will: If the deceased person left a valid will, it must be filed with the appropriate probate court in the county where they resided.
  • Estate Planning DocumentAppointment of an executor: The court will appoint an executor, also known as a personal representative, to manage the probate process. If there is no will or no executor named in the will, the court will appoint an administrator.
  • Inventory and appraisal: The executor is responsible for identifying and collecting the deceased person’s assets, appraising them if necessary, and preparing an inventory.
  • Payment of debts and taxes: The executor must pay any outstanding debts and taxes owed by the deceased person’s estate before distributing the remaining assets.
  • Distribution of assets: Once the estate pays all debts and taxes, the executor can distribute the remaining assets to the beneficiaries named in the will or determined by Texas law if there is no will.
  • Closing the estate: After all assets have been distributed, the executor must file a final account with the court and obtain approval for the closing of the estate.

While this is a simplified overview of the probate process, it highlights the importance of having an experienced probate attorney by your side. Fiegel Law can guide you through each step of the process, ensuring that everything proceeds accurately and efficiently.

“Mr. Fiegel was recently my lawyer for a family matter that included complex situations (50/50 custody, combative coparent). He stuck with me, for 10 months while a whirlwind of situations/petitions occurred. He never made me feel like I was asking too many questions, always made me feel like I my case was the only case, had great HONEST advice that allowed me to see situations in the context of family law AND we won absolutely everything I wanted and more (at a great price). All based off his ability to navigate the sometimes unfair family court system. I’ll never use another lawyer. Thanks Beau!”
