There is a significant amount of unclaimed wealth including bank accounts, houses, oil interests, safety deposit boxes, stocks, and other wealth that is forgotten about or is unclaimed.  Much of this wealth is collected by the states and held for rightful owners including heirs and beneficiaries.

In claiming lost wealth, it is usually best to check with the state where the decedent was living to determine if that person's assets have been collected by the state.  The following link can be used to check Texas Unclaimed Property.  However, this is not the only place that should be investigated as many financial institutions, oil companies, banks, trusts, large corporations, and insurance companies, keep assets for an extended period of time or send the property to other states.  For more information on collection of unclaimed property, please follow this link to Texas Estate and Probate Unclaimed Property Lawyer. 

In Texas, the state is currently safekeeping over $2 billion in assets entrusted to it from a variety of sources, including unclaimed utility deposits, dormant bank accounts, unclaimed wages, safety deposit boxes, insurance policies and uncashed checks.  In fiscal year 2010, the state returned more than $160 million in such assets.  Many of these assets will need to go through probate before they can be distributed to the heirs of estate or beneficiaries of an estate.

Texas Estate Unclaimed Property Lawyer, Texas Probate Unclaimed Property Lawyer, Texas Probate Unclaimed Royalties Lawyer, and Texas Unclaimed Mineral Interest Lawyer, works with heirs and beneficiaries of significant sized estates to help them gain control of their loved one's estate to be able to claim unclaimed property.  In most cases, the estate will need to go through a will probate or a suit to determine heirship.  This probate process can be expensive, but if there are significant assets in the estate, the investment can be well worth the cost.  Further, if there are significant assets in the estate, the probate process or collection process can sometimes be handled on a contingent contract or a hybrid contract.  For more information, please see the follow web page: Texas Contingent Probate Lawyer, Texas Contingent Death Benefit Lawyer, and Texas Contingent Estate Collection Lawyer.

The Probate Process and Inheritance is Expected to Become More Common with Hundreds of Billions of Dollars in Property Being Passed Down Each Year and in the Future Trillions of Dollars in Inheritance is Expected to be Passed Down

Inheritance is the practice of passing on wealth or obligations upon the death of an individual.  The Texas Probate Process allows families to pass land, businesses, stocks, jewelry, oil interests, gas interests, mineral interests, and other wealth to their children and people that they love.  It is estimated that in the United States over $200 Billion each year is passed down through inheritance to heirs and beneficiaries.  Through Wills and intestate laws, Texas courts determine who are proper heirs and beneficiaries and allow tremendous amounts of wealth to be inherited each year.  It is expected with our aging population, that the amount of inheritance that will be passed through the United States Probate System will continue to increase in the next 20 years as Trillions of Dollars in wealth will be passed on through inheritance. 

For this reason, many people that have no experience with the Texas probate system will be faced with numerous Texas Probate Law decisions on estates with hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars worth of assets.  It is therefore extremely important to hire an experienced Texas Probate Lawyer that is able to work with out of state or inexperienced heirs and beneficiaries to handle estate probate issues.

In addition to what is inherited, there is a significant amount of unclaimed wealth including bank accounts, houses, oil interests, safety deposit boxes, stocks, and other wealth that is forgotten about.  In our modern society families don't always live close and some wealth is lost or forgotten.  Death or incapacity is not always anticipated and many people will unfortunately loose track of stocks, bank accounts, oil interests, and other wealth.  It is a good idea to keep a safety deposit box with an inventory of all your assets and have people that you trust that can get access to your safety deposit box should something happen to you.

It is also becoming more common for family members not living close to a recently deceased relative to not know how to handle a probate matter or have enough money to clear title to property.  In these instances it is good to locate a local attorney that can assist in appraising an estate including real estate and houses to determine if it would be beneficial to probate an estate or to determine the most efficient method to clear title to property.

Austin Texas Inheritance Lawyer, Jason Coomer helps families evaluate the estates of their lost loved ones to determine if a full probate is necessary and if so if the probate is economically feasible.

Many Families have Spread Out Across The United States and Throughout the World, Therefore it is Often Helpful to Hire a Texas Probate Lawyer to Assist with the Texas Probate Process and to Handle Estate Issues

Many families have spread out throughout the United States and around the World.  For many families, gone is the time where several generations live with in a few miles of each other in the same town, city, or county.  This disbursement of families can make it difficult, when a family member in Texas passes away. 

For the family member that lives out of state and have never been through the Texas probate process, Texas Probate Law and Texas Probate Courts can be overwhelming.  At a time when they want to grieve the loss of their loved one, they are forced to deal with difficult issues including:

    1) Who should be in control of their loved ones' estate?
    2) What needs to be done to have an administrator or executor appointed?
    3) What is probate & non-probate property?
    4)  What should be done to protect estate property?
    5)  Is a Will necessary?
    6)  What can be done with Estate property?  Can it be sold or transferred?

It is often helpful to speak with and hire a Texas probate lawyer to help take care of many of the probate issues.  A Texas probate lawyer can help "out of town" relatives  through the probate process and taking care of the estate.  This is extremely helpful when relatives and loved ones want to focus on the grieving process instead of learning Texas Probate Law and navigating Texas Probate Courts.
