Probate Administration in Plano, TX
Probate Attorney John F. Williams, Jr. Can Help You with Probate Matters and Probate Administration
Probate Administration is simply the legal process in which the Court works with the executor of the estate to oversee the payment of debts, and the distribution of assets of your deceased loved one. The probate process can take as little as 3 months or years depending on the size and complexity of the estate. Anyone directly involved in probating an estate will tell you that the process can be emotionally draining and time consuming. The Law Offices of John F. Williams, Jr. have worked with many families handling probate. With our guidance, you can lessen the time spent dealing with probate and make this process more manageable. In Texas, you have different types of probate proceedings and various alternatives depending on how you wish to administer the assets.
Probating a Will in Texas
Probating a Last Will and Testament is a straightforward process. Once the Will has been filed with the Court and the executor has been appointed, the remainder of time spent will depend on variables including the assets of the estate, location of the assets (in state and out of state) and dealing with bills and creditors. We can help you complete the probate process in a quick and painless manner. Our attorneys obtain letters testamentary to administer the assets. Our Law Firm can also probate the will as Muniment of Title to transfer ownership of property from the decedent to the heirs.
Probating an Estate without a Will
Should you have to probate an estate without a Will (intestacy), the Court will oversee the probate process. The Court will appoint an administrator, determine beneficiaries, direct payment to creditors, and distribute the remainder of the assets. Should your loved one die without any Will, you have two options, independent administration or dependent administration. Either process takes more time and money in order to instigate the probate process. Through the help of our Law Firm you can administer the estate and successfully complete the probate.
The probate of an estate can be an intimidating experience for anyone that has never been through the process. As an experienced probate attorney, I can guide you through this legal maze and save you the emotional turmoil.
