So what is Probate?
Probate is the legal process often required following the death of an individual. The purpose of the probate process is to ensure that the decedent’s estate assets are accounted for and transferred according to the decedent’s wishes or pursuant to Texas intestate succession laws. Probate also provides an opportunity for creditors to file claims against the estate.
