What is Probate under Texas Law?admin
What is Probate? At its core, probate is the legal process that takes place after someone dies. The actual legal steps themselves vary depending on a variety of circumstances. The probate process under Texas Law involves proving that a Last Will and Testament is valid or that it should be contested, disputed and invalidated. In other cases, the probate process involves identifying a decedent’s legal heirs. The goal of probate is to ensure the orderly and legal transfer of property from a decedent to the person(s) entitled to receive the property and to provide a forum for the decedent’s creditors to present their claims.
