PROBATE

Probate is the official court-supervised process for transferring assets held by a deceased person’s estate to their heirs. In Texas, the process varies depending on several factors, including whether or not the decedent had a will and the value or the decedent’s estate amongst other factors. In what is often a difficult and cumbersome ordeal at a time when our clients are grieving the loss of their loved one the attorneys at Byers & Taylor, PLLC seek to simplify this process and ease the burden. Quite often our clients are relieved to learn that probate administration can be a fairly smooth process. In other cases, such as when a will is challenged, the process can be more difficult to resolve, but our attorneys are there to guide our clients through the process as quickly and painlessly as possible.

AFFIDAVIT OF HEIRSHIP

When an individual owner of property in Texas passes away without a mechanism in place that automatically transfers the property upon the death of the deceased owner (such as a right of survivorship agreement, transfer on death deed, or other beneficiary designation), the property becomes a part of their estate and is distributed to their heirs.
