  • What are the disadvantages of probate?

    Probate can be a long, complicated process. There are many disadvantages to going through the probate process, including:

    • Your personal family and financial information may become exposed to the public.
    • Court, attorney, and executor fees are deducted from the estate’s value.
    • Probate can be complicated and stressful for executors and beneficiaries.

    The probate process can be avoided with professional estate planning with a trusted advisor.

  • How are probate taxes handled in Texas?
    There is no estate tax or “probate” tax in Texas. However, the estate executor may have to pay federal taxes for the deceased before distributing the assets to the beneficiaries.

    The time it takes to complete probate in Texas depends on the case’s complexity. A simple estate may be resolved in six months or less. However, probate cases may take more than a year if a will isn’t found, doesn’t exist, or is contested.
