FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PROBATE CASES
WHAT IS PROBATE?
Probate is the legal process by which a person’s assets are distributed and debts are paid upon their death. This process starts with proving to the court that a deceased person’s will is valid. The deceased person's property is then inventoried, appraised and distributed as the will directs. Probate also includes having the deceased debts settled and taxes paid.
CAN I AVOID PROBATE?
Yes. In the state of Texas, if the assets amount to less than $50,000 a hearing is not usually necessary provided that you file the proper affidavits. It is important to consult an attorney before doing so.
