As an Texas Probate Lawyer, Jason Coomer works on a variety of different types of Texas Probate, Inheritance, and Estate Matters. In helping families with Texas inheritance and probate matters including probating Wills and determining heir through intestate matters, he has encountered many issues. Some common issues are discussed in more details on other web pages. For more information on Texas Inheritance, Estate, and Probate Law, please go to the following web pages:
Inheritance is the practice of passing on wealth or obligations upon the death of an individual. This allows parents to pass on real estate, mineral interests, royalty rights, land, buildings, houses, 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 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. The amount of wealth including real estate, mineral interests, royalty rights, land, buildings, houses, businesses, stocks, jewelry, life insurance, bonds, and gold that will be passed through inheritance is expected to continue to increase in the next 20 years as Trillions of Dollars in wealth is passed on through inheritance.
Unfortunately, a good portion of this wealth will be lost or stolen as rightful heirs, lawful will beneficiaries, and rightful trust beneficiaries are unable to locate or claim family wealth or even worse vultures or corporations steal family wealth. To help prevent lost or stolen wealth, it is important to keep records and an inventory of all family wealth including real estate, mineral interests, royalty rights, land, buildings, houses, businesses, stocks, jewelry, life insurance, bonds, and gold. It is also important to make sure that this information can be recovered by loved ones in case of an unexpected death or incapacity.
After a family member dies, the real property, businesses, and other wealth that they owned can often become stuck during the probate process and if proper action is not taken the wealth can be lost or stolen. Loss of inheritance is especially common when a family member suffers from senility and/or is extremely secretive about their finances before their death and has not left a Will or any instructions as to what they want done with their Texas wealth after they die.
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 the family member that lives out of state and has 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) How does someone probate a Will?
6) How should estate property be transferred to beneficiaries? Can it be sold?
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 ir loved ones' 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.
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.
