Probating a Will in Texas

TEXAS PROBATE ISN'T SCARY -- OR EXPENSIVE

If a will is properly drawn, probating a will in Texas is relatively easy with little cost or trouble. Probate is necessary if a loved one has died and you need to get a court's authority to act for the deceased. In such cases, you need to probate the will.

NO WILL?
I'M NOT GETTING MY INHERITANCE!
CONTESTING A WILL OR TRUST
If your relative didn't leave a will, you may still need to file an action in Probate Court.  Read about Probate options and costs.
Are you an heir and the person handling the estate isn't getting you your inheritance? Read about your options for inheritance.  A contingent fee arrangement is possible.
If you are related to someone who has died and you believe the will was improperly drafted, the decedent was coerced into signing the will or changing its terms, or you believe the decedent lacked the mental capacity to make a will, you may want to challenge the will.

DEFENDING A WILL CONTEST
DISPUTES WITH EXECUTORS OR TRUSTEES
GUARDIANSHIPS
If you are named in a will as beneficiary or executor, and someone has filed suit to challenge the will or is threatening to do so, you should hire an attorney immediately. Contact Pyke & Associates

If you are a beneficiary of a will and the executor has not treated you fairly or is mismanaging the estate, you may need to pursue your legal rights. Similarly, if you are the beneficiary of a trust, the trustee must fairly manage the trust for the best interests of the beneficiaries. Executors and trustees are fiduciaries -- people held to very high legal standards.
Learn more about disputes with executors and trustees.
If your relative is not capable of handling their affairs, you may need a guardianship. Learn more about Guardianships or Contact Pyke & Associates.
