Probate Attorney in Austin

Protect Your Best Interests After the Loss of a Loved One

Probate is the legal process that can take place after an individual dies intestate, or without an estate plan, or if there is a dispute among surviving family members. The goal of probate is to transfer property from a decedent to a rightful beneficiary.

Do you need help properly administering an estate? Do you desire to honor your deceased loved one’s wishes? Our Austin probate attorney can assist you in matters of probate administration and litigation.

At Hembree Bell Law Firm, PLLC, we are committed to protecting your interests. To consult with an experienced attorney, contact our office at (512) 768-9737.

What Can You Expect from the Probate Process?

Though cases vary based on individual circumstances, in general the probate process proceeds as follows:

  • A decedent’s will is interpreted
  • An application is filed to initiate probate
  • A court hearing is set for application for executorship
  • The estate’s assets are inventoried and appraised
  • All valid creditor claims are paid
  • The estate’s assets are transferred to beneficiaries
  • All related tax filings are made

The probate process may become more complicated if a dispute arises. Common disputes include will contests, capacity and competence, fraud by an executor or trustee, multiple wills, conflicting interpretations, duress or undue influence, breach of fiduciary duty, and interference with inheritance rights.

No matter how seemingly simple or complicated your probate case, our Austin probate lawyer is prepared to work on your behalf. Your best interests will remain our central priority. We are proud to provide dedicated legal representation to clients across Travis, Williamson, and Bexar counties.
