Many probate estates are administered on a “routine” basis. “Probate” refers to the judicial proceeding in which an instrument is determined to be the valid last Will and testament of the Decedent or, if there is no Will, the proceeding in which the Decedent’s heirs are legally determined. At the probate proceeding, an executor (if named in a Decedent’s Will) or an administrator (if named by the court) is appointed to carry out the administration of the Decedent’s estate.

When individuals die without wills, the State of Texas intestacy laws specify who will inherit from the intestate decedent. Important factors in determining who gets what include whether the decedent was married and whether he or she had children. Another important consideration is whether the decedent’s property was “separate property” or “community property” under Texas law.
