Understanding Probate

Probate is the legal process through which a deceased person’s estate is administered and distributed. This includes validating the will, paying debts and taxes, and distributing the remaining assets to beneficiaries. In Texas, probate can be complex and time-consuming, often requiring the expertise of a skilled attorney to navigate successfully.
