Don't go through probate alone

Probate is the legal process of transferring financial accounts and property from a deceased person's estate. Texas probate follows 8 steps:

  1. Filing: You must first file a probate application in the county where the deceased party lived.
  2. Posting: After filing the application, there is a two-week waiting period before a hearing. If no one contests the will, the process may proceed.
  3. Will validating: A judge must then validate the will and legally recognize the deceased's death.
  4. Cataloging assets: The executor must catalog the deceased's assets within 90 days.
  5. Beneficiaries identified: The executor will notify any beneficiaries of the estate.
  6. Notifying Creditors: Any leftover debts must be resolved out of the deceased's estate.
  7. Resolving disputes: A probate court must hear any disputes.
  8. Distributing assets: All remaining assets are distributed to the beneficiaries.
