What is Probate?

Probate is the legal process whereby a person’s estate is distributed upon his or her death.  If you die without a Will, that is called intestacy or dying intestate.  Regardless of whether an individual had a Will, probate is the process by which heirs are determined and/or property is distributed.  Filing for probate in Texas is efficient and inexpensive with a properly written Texas Will.
