Dallas Probate Lawyer

Understanding the Probate Process in Texas

The Texas probate process is generally fairly straight-forward. The executor, with the assistance of a Dallas family law attorney, files an Application for Probate along with the Will with the probate court which then appoints the executor who handles the estate. The executor has the authority to act in place of the decedent. At the Mathur Law Offices, P.C., we have handled numerous probate cases and are prepared to guide you through the process, take care of all court filings, and generally smooth the probate process for the executor.

Probate Lawyer in Dallas

Once the executor has been officially appointed by the court, the executor and probate attorney publish a notice to creditors regarding the administration of the estate. The duties of the executor include preparing an inventory of assets and liabilities which is filed with the court, selling the assets, paying off the debts, and distributing the estate to the beneficiaries in accordance with the will. Our legal team will assist the executor and oversee that proper accounting is done and all tax returns and taxes are correctly paid.

Even with a well prepared will, obstacles to a smooth proceeding occasionally arise, including disputes between the beneficiaries or with the executor, the contesting of a will on the basis of diminished capacity or undue influence on the decedent by another, a suit disputing the intent of a section of the will, or a claim against the executor for mishandling of assets. We are experienced in all facets of probate, such as guardianship, and are ready to apply years of insight to resolving any issues in the most effective and efficient method possible. A Dallas family law lawyer at the Mathur Law Offices, P.C. will meet with you to discuss your probate matter. Contact a Dallas probate attorney today.
