Coping with the death of a loved one is difficult enough without having to face the legal issues of probating and administering an estate. The person who has the obligation to carry-out the terms of a will is called the “executor”.
Your duties as an executor can involve filing the Will with the proper court, appearing at a court hearing to prove the validity of the will and be appointed executor, dealing with heirs and beneficiaries, paying the debts and taxes of the deceased from the estate and distributing the remaining assets according to the terms of the will.
Serving as an executor and administering an estate can be difficult and stressful but choosing the correct attorney can reduce the difficulties and your stress.
The executor’s attorney must be able to provide sound, experienced and knowledgeable advice on matters such as:
Interpreting the terms of the will
Abiding by the rules of the court and the Texas Probate Code
Dealing with creditors
