When a loved one passes away, it is important to immediately take the necessary steps to administer the estate, whether through probate or trust administration. Texas law provides certain time limits within which to probate a loved one’s will. Failure to timely probate a will result in additional probate costs and may result in an inability to probate the will.
At the Villegas Law Firm, we help our clients through the entire probate process. We work with our clients on a one-on-one basis in order to effectively assist them in selecting the probate process that is right for them and the decedent’s estate.
When a Last Will and Testament exists, we can generally ensure a quick court case in order to have assets and property distributed to the rightful heirs. In addition, we will assist in minimizing the tax consequences to the estate.
- Whether or not a Last Will and Testament exists, we help our clients with the following:
- Getting the Last Will and Testament admitted to probate;
- Giving all necessary notices to creditors of the decedent;
- Giving all necessary notices to beneficiaries named in the Last Will and Testament;
- Preparing and filing with the probate court the required inventory of estate assets;
- Processing creditor’s claims;
