Probate Administration (Including Litigation)
Houston Probate Lawyers
When your loved one has left a will outlining how they wish to leave their assets, it should be filed with the probate court. An experienced attorney can help you through the process quickly and efficiently. At the Houston law offices of De Lange Hudspeth, our probate lawyers can help you make sure your loved one’s estate is administered according to their wishes.
Understanding the Probate Process
One of the most common misconceptions about probate is that it is a difficult, lengthy, confusing, and expensive process that is best avoided. With a well-drafted will, probate can be accomplished with one short court hearing. An experienced probate lawyer can help you understand the process and advise you about the necessary steps.
Probate is a simple process. The administration process constitutes very little court time. Once the will is probated, the executor gathers all the assets of the deceased and then has them inventoried and distributed.
Sometimes there will be disputes regarding a will or trust that is being administered through probate. One party may claim that they have a later will or multiple parties may question the actions of the executor.
