Having a solid estate plan in place is the most step to pass on your legacy to your loved ones. The second step is
to probate the Will. Many people are uninformed or misinformed about the eﬀect of a Will upon a person's death. In fact, a last will and testament has no legal eﬀect whatsoever until it is probated. Probate is the process by which legal eﬀect is given to the Will and someone is appointed to see that your carefully crafted estate plan is fully executed. The personal representative holds "fiduciary" duties and has responsibility for the interests of the decedent's estate, as well as the estate's beneficiaries with due consideration. Robert can help you navigate through the probate process.
Probate also refers to the process that must be undertaken when the deceased had no Will. Depending upon several factors, there are several legal methods to pass legal rights to property and assets to the heirs per Texas law. Probate or a legal procedure must still be undertaken.
