Probate as Muniment of Title: What is It?
Most times when someone dies with a Will, the Will has to be probated to transfer property to their loved ones. In Texas, probating a Will is usually very easy and straightforward. In general, you are asking the court to find that it the Will is valid so that the property can be transferred to the individuals named as the beneficiaries, and you are asking the court to appoint the person named in the Will to act as the Executor to administer the estate. When appointed, the Executor can get “Letters Testamentary”, which is just a fancy term for court orders showing that the Executor can act on behalf of the estate.
Drive, Don't Text
Texting and driving has become a huge problem in many states, especially Texas where people drive all the time and often have long commutes to work. It seems rather obvious that texting and driving is dangerous - simply put, it takes your focus off the road and on your phone. If you have been injured in an auto accident caused by a distracted driver, you should seek the advice of a Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury lawyer.
Personal Injury: The Painful Truth
If you are trying to recover damages from the insurance company of the person who has caused your injuries or even from your own insurance company, it’s time to learn more about filing a personal injury lawsuit on an insurance claim.
Make no mistake, you want an experienced lawyer by your side as early as possible in this process. A personal injury lawyer who has successfully handled insurance claims may give you an advantage in getting the best possible settlement or court decision possible.
To Probate or Not To Probate? That is the Question.
Probate is the legal process of enforcing the terms of a person’s Will, seeing that all the unfinished debts and taxes are paid, and that the remaining assets are distributed. Texas law provides several different legal procedures which can all be labeled probate. The appropriate process must be selected by your survivors, in consultation with their attorney, depending on the circumstances that exist after your death.
