Austin, Texas, Estate Administration Lawyer
Upon an individual's death, the probate court will examine the terms of the decedent's will to determine how his or her assets are to be distributed to a spouse, children, or other beneficiaries. In the majority of cases, the surviving spouse and family will be given the majority of assets and the probate process does not pose any major legal problems. However, in the event of a contested will, or other such dispute, the probate laws can have a major impact upon the estate. When faced with a contested matter in the administration of an estate, it is advisable to seek the services of a qualified attorney. In fact, many persons in Texas die without a will (intestate) and the probate of their estates can be much more complicated.
