Will Probate
Probate of Wills

We file wills for probate in the probate court to obtain a court order recognizing the will as a decedent's last will, and obtaining the appointment of the executor named in the will. Most wills drawn by competent Texas attorneys provide for the appointment of an independent executor, allowing the estate to be handled without court supervision, saving the client time and money. In some circumstances, this process can be concluded as quickly as two to three weeks.
 
When there are no debts owed by the estate, Texas law allows a will to be probated as a "muniment of title", an even shorter process.
