Taking The Time To Explain Probate
The death of a loved one is a tragic event.
The time immediately following a death is a time for mourning. That passing away however, can also lead to a number of complicated, legal and financial issues. For example, if you were named the personal representative of a friend or family member’s estate, you have been entrusted to fulfill a number of important tasks. A lawyer can be vital in fulfilling these duties while you go through the grieving process.
At The Law Office of Lisa Vance., we let our clients focus on their family while we handle the legal matters involved in the probate process.
Helping You Effectively Navigate The Texas Probate Process
Our team of San Antonio probate attorneys understands just how daunting the probate process can seem, especially for someone who has never served as a personal representative before. With decades of combined legal experience, we guide families across Texas through the probate process.
Simply put, the probate process revolves around administering an estate according to a legally valid will. Property and assets are legally transferred to his or her beneficiaries/heirs by a personal representative.
At The Law Office of Lisa A. Vance, we can help in all of the personal representative’s duties, including:
- Identifying assets and property to be divided
- Inventorying and valuating assets and property to be divided
- Paying any estate taxes, expenses and debts
- Distributing property to beneficiaries as directed by a will or state law
If your loved one has died without a will, Texas courts will determine the administration of the estate assets and property. This process may be complex. We urge you to contact us to learn more about how we can help you during this difficult time.
Providing Vigorous Legal Representation During Probate Litigation
While our lawyers always strive to help our clients get through the probate process as easily and cost-effectively as possible, we know that problems can arise. In some cases, these problems can lead to litigation. For instance, if a family member or another party is disputing inheritance, challenging the validity of the will or is accusing you of wrongdoing as the personal representative, we will advocate for your rights in and out of the courtroom.
