Probate Made Easier
In Texas, probate is required for an estate whether or not the decedent has a will. An executor or administrator manages the probate process, often under the supervision of the court. Wills usually name an executor, but the court will appoint an administrator of the estate if there is no will or no individual is named in the document.
Accomplished Legal Counsel
If the executor named in the decedent’s will can or will not fulfill the duties of probate, the court will appoint a representative as an estate administrator. Attorney Catherine Palmore of The Palmore Law Firm, PLLC in Conroe offers probate administration services throughout Montgomery County and the surrounding areas, including The Woodlands. She brings experienced estate planning and administration skills to the table to achieve her clients’ objectives.
An Independent Option
Normally, the probate process gets court supervision from beginning to end, but in some cases, Texas law allows for an executor to independently complete the probate process. This means the court does not need to supervise the settling of the estate, which reduces the time and expense.
There are two conditions that qualify an estate to have independent administration, at least one condition needs to exist to be considered. First, the will of the decedent must state the wish for the administration of the will to be independent. Alternatively, all of the will’s beneficiaries must agree to use the independent probate process.
