Probate Administration

During the probate legal process in Texas, a court oversees the administration of a person's estate to ensure that taxes and other debts and expenses are paid.

The rest of the estate is distributed according to wishes expressed in the decedent's will. If the person died without a will, the estate would be administered in keeping with laws that govern intestate succession.

Lovelace Killen P.L.L.C. — Experienced Burleson Executor Attorneys

We assist the executor or personal representative with the broad range of duties associated with probate, estate and trust administration, such as:

  • Opening the estate
  • Collection and valuation of assets
  • Payment of taxes and debts
  • Asset distributions to heirs
  • Trust investments and distributions
  • Accurate accounting and reporting

A will may call for independent administration, in which an appointed administrator conducts transactions and settles the estate's affairs without constant court oversight. Lovelace Killen P.L.L.C. advises independent administrators on legal and financial aspects of swift, efficient closing of an estate.

Intestate succession, for situations in which a person has died without a will, can be much more complex. Our Burleson lawyers guide a personal representative as smoothly as possible through the legal process. These services include appearances in probate court, legal challenges and a phasing out of the estate.
