Taking The Stress Out Of Probate And Estate Administration
After a loved one passes away, his or her property must be identified, valued and distributed through what is known as probate or estate administration. Probate is a court process that is overseen by a judge and administered by the personal representative of the estate, known as the estate “executor” if the decedent died with a will, or “administrator” if the decedent died without a will.
Many personal representatives have never been through the Texas probate process before, and some even live out of state. Additionally, many are dealing with the grief of losing a loved one at the same time they are trying to settle the loved one’s estate. This can make probate very overwhelming, especially considering that the process can be complex and there is significant paperwork involved and rules that must be followed.

At Turkett Law Office, we lift the burden of probate off the personal representative’s shoulders by offering professional guidance and support. With our attorney’s help, you will have peace of mind that everything is being taken care of according to the law and your loved one’s wishes.
Probate includes many different court processes, and the one that applies depends on the situation. Our probate attorney assists in probate matters involving wills as well as those where the decedent died intestate, or without a will. In situations where the decedent died without a will, the estate is administered according to the state’s intestacy laws.
Our firm is also experienced at assisting with probate issues including determination or declaration of heirship, affidavit of heirship, community administration and small estate affidavit.
