Probate Law – Probate Administration
Bryan – College Station Attorneys
When a person dies, his or her estate must go through probate, which is a process overseen by a probate court. If the decedent leaves a will directing how his or her property should be distributed after death, the probate court must determine if it should be admitted to probate and given legal effect. If the decedent dies intestate—without leaving a will— the decedent’s estate is administered intestate. At Searcy & Gandy, PC, our job is to make every effort to guarantee that your desires or your family member’s desires are brought to fruition and that the decedent’s estate is administered properly with the clarity and definition as intended and required. We provide comprehensive probate services, including all required notices, court filings and hearings. Our probate attorneys have experience, so we can help you efficiently navigate through the probate process to protect your rights and ease your mind.
In general, the probate process involves collecting the decedent’s assets, liquidating liabilities, paying necessary taxes, and distributing property to heirs. Probate procedures are governed by state law.
