Navigate The Probate Process After Losing A Loved One

Losing a loved one is a painful experience to endure. Unfortunately, many families are forced to sort through their late family member’s assets at the same time that they are grieving. This can be especially painful if there are estate disputes among family members regarding what should happen to various assets belonging to the estate of the deceased.

At the Law offices of Mari Garza and Lynn Peach, PLLC, we have a combined 25 years of experience helping individuals and families navigate the thorny issues of probate law.

We Help Our Clients Understand Texas’s Unique Probate Laws

Probate can be a time-consuming process, and details that you might prefer to keep private may be recorded in public records. But many families find themselves in need of estate administration and other probate services because their loved one’s estate plan left some questions unanswered. Even when a will has been written, the probate process is often required to disburse assets to the appropriate parties. And when the deceased has left no will — an “intestate” case — probate courts will help determine heirship.

Probate law in Texas is slightly different from most other states. The state allows for abbreviated methods of probate that can be finalized more quickly and cost-effectively. Eligibility for these abbreviated methods depends on the size and nature of the estate in question, as well as when the decedent has passed away. We can help you determine whether your family is eligible for this expedited process.
