Many families have spread out throughout the United States and around the World. For the family member that lives out of state and has never been through the Texas probate process, it can often be challenging to understand what should be done under Texas probate law. At a time when they want to grieve the loss of their loved one, they are often forced to deal with difficult issues including:
should be in control of their loved ones' estate?
2) What needs to be done to have an administrator or executor appointed?
3) What are 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?
When faced with these decisions, it is often helpful to speak with and hire a Texas probate lawyer to help take care of probate issues. A Texas probate lawyer can help "out of state" family members through the probate process and help move an estate through probate. Texas Probate and Inheritance Lawyer, Jason Coomer, commonly works with out of state family, heirs, lawyers, and beneficiaries through the Texas probate process. In doing so, he works to protect the wishes of loved ones that have passed on, the best interests of his clients, and to coordinate efforts with out of state co-counsel.
In some situations family assets cannot get transferred or collected by their rightful heirs or beneficiaries because the heirs and beneficiaries cannot afford the cost of probate and other transfer costs. In these situations, a Texas Contingent Probate Lawyer or Texas Contingent Death Benefit Lawyer that works on a percentage of the estate property can help heirs and beneficiaries transfer estate property to rightful heirs and beneficiaries.
In these situations, the Texas Contingent Probate Lawyer or Texas Contingent Death Benefit Lawyer will typically need to see that there are actual significant assets in the estate and who the rightful heirs and beneficiaries are of the estate. In these cases, bank statements, life insurance policies, royalty statements, mutual fund statements, retirement fund statements, real property deeds, property tax information, and other evidence of the estate assets can be useful in determining the approximate value of the estate and if a contingent contract for probating the estate can be viable.
For questions on collecting estate assets and death benefits on a contingent contract, please feel free to send an e-mail message to Texas Contingent Probate Lawyer, Texas Death Benefit Lawyer, and Texas Estate Asset Collection Lawyer Jason S. Coomer or use our contact form to submit an inquiry regarding a Will Probate, Estate Probate, or Will Contest.
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.
Inheritance is the practice of passing on wealth or obligations upon the death of an individual. The Texas Probate Process allows parents to pass on land, businesses, stocks, jewelry, 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.
