What is Probate?
Probate is the legal process of submitting a Will for examination and acceptance by the court, and legally appointing an Executor to carry out the terms of the Will in disposing of the decedent’s estate. The Executor then has the legal responsibility to carry out the instructions in the Will, deal with the creditors of the estate and pay any taxes due. If you have been appointed the Executor of a friend or family member’s estate, it is important to contact qualified San Antonio probate attorneys to advise you and ensure the instructions are carried out to the letter. The estate and probate attorneys at de la Riva and Associates are experienced in clearly explaining the probate process, and compassionately helping Executors carry out their legal obligations efficiently and effectively.
