Houston Attorney for Affidavit Of Heirship

One of the primary concerns when a loved one dies without a will (called intestate) is determining who the heirs are. Texas law has established a statutory process for determining heirship. Although the process can be lengthy and expensive, our attorneys can provide you with the help you need.

Affidavit Of Heirship

The will is the primary means by which a person passes on wealth, real property and other assets after death. Without this essential estate planning instrument, the court will appoint an executor to distribute the assets according to the statutory provisions. This is a complicated, time-consuming process.

When an affidavit of heirship is appropriate, it can save a great deal of time and complexity in the probate process. An affidavit of heirship is a legal document detailing the list of heirs for a property according to the probate code in intestate proceedings. With all of the details in place, the process of clearing title is made much simpler.

Our Houston probate lawyers have a wealth of experience handling affidavits of heirship and other methods of heirship determinations. We will walk you through the process, helping you understand the procedures and the legal contingencies involved with clearing title in an intestate estate.
