What is probate?
Probate is the process of transferring the property and belongings of a person who has died to their heirs. Despite what you may have heard, probate does not need to be lengthy, expensive or complicated. In fact, probate is not even mandatory in Texas. However, the probate system is intended to help heirs and beneficiaries clear any entitlement to assets as easily as possible, and to prevent false claims against the decedent's estate. Many banks and other institutions will not release funds and assets to the heirs of the decedent account owner without a probate order which protects them from liability.


When a person dies without a will, it can be a nightmare but with a qualified attorney on your case you can rest assured you are in the right hands. During this process, the administrator of the estate can take little action without the express approval of the court. With McCall & McCall we are there to handle and council you throughout this process. We can help when you need a will whether it be simple or a complex estate with many assets. McCall & McCall attorneys have extensive knowledge, experience and resources to walk you through the decisions regarding your future with proper trust and estate planning and all of your legal concerns.
