Administering Your Estate Through Probate
When you pass away, regardless of whether you have a will or estate plan in place, your estate may need to go through probate. Probate administration is when the court legally and officially recognizes your passing and begins the process of overseeing the payment of your debts and the distribution of your assets.
In the absence of a will or trust, the responsibility will either be put on a primary heir or the court will do it themselves. In either case, your wishes may not be accurately reflected should that responsibility fall on the courts or anyone else. This is why having a clear and thorough estate plan in place is so essential to ensuring your assets are distributed according to your exact wishes.
When going through probate, it is essential to have an experienced attorney work with you to ensure legal compliance and closure for the estate. For more than a decade, I have guided countless clients through these processes in Waco and Temple, Texas and the surrounding communities.
