Probate Administration in Houston, Texas
Probate is a court proceeding by which a will is proved valid or invalid. The term is used to mean all proceedings pertaining to the administration of estates, such as the process by which assets are gathered; applied to pay debts, taxes and expenses of administration; and distributed to those designated as beneficiaries in the will.
The probate process starts by filing an application for probate with the Houston probate court and concludes when the executor or administrator is discharged by the court. Texas laws imposes specific deadlines, mandate that certain filings are made, and require certain notices, forms, and tax returns be filed.
