What Texans Need to Know About Probate


How does probate work?

Vacek & Thain, PLLC, can assist your executor (administrator or personal representative) through the Texas Probate system.  Our attorneys will assist and file all required court documents, attend hearings, and guide the executor in fulfilling his or her fiduciary duties.  Depending on the type of Probate, these duties may include filing Notice to Creditors, filing Affidavits, giving Notice to beneficiaries, assisting in preparation of accounting, and filing the final Inventory (or Affidavit in Lieu of Inventory).

Settlement of the probate estate may include the following:

  • Valuation of assets under current IRS rules
  • Preparation and filing of a Federal Estate Tax return (Form 706) if required or necessary for purposes of portability
  • Counsel regarding distribution of assets according to the terms of the Will
  • Drafting and preparation of a distribution and settlement agreement
  • Drafting and preparation of a receipt and release
