When a person dies, his or her estate must go through probate, which is a process overseen by a probate court. The probate process involves collecting the decedent's assets, liquidating liabilities, paying necessary taxes, and distributing property to heirs. During the process, the court will verify the Will of the deceased, and use it to determine how to allocate their estate.
Due to its nature, probate is the only legal proceeding in which an individual is unable to represent their self. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that a person takes the necessary steps to develop a Will, and that their descendants seek representation from a lawyer that will protect their inheritance. Victoria Vaughan Laine will work to make sure that your family's life and legacy withstand the test of time.
Why would you risk cookie-cutter wills and online wills with your home and lifelong savings? A probate attorney has years of experience that can guide and direct a person on the benefits of a will. Often people will put off making a will, which brings an estate to the succession laws of Texas, which will determine who runs your estate and where it goes.
Your family and loved ones or favorite charity benefit from the reasonable costs of a will prepared according to your wishes by and experienced attorney.
