Legal Answers
101 Questions Answered
Q. How would an heir go about addressing a church pastor who took over a deceased loved one's property and assets?
A: I agree with the previous answer. If it's possible the pastor doesn't know about the heir, it could be that the pastor thought the pastor was actually doing the right thing.

Aside from that, you should definitely consult with a probate attorney ASAP. You probably want to file in probate court as quickly as you can. The heir's legal rights need to be protected, and you really don't want assets "disappearing."
Q. So my father has passed away and has land in his name only but also has the home on the land in his and his lates wifes.
A: Since there's no will, the "heirs at law" inherit. The law calls it intestate succession.

In case you're curious, here's a link to the actual law:

https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/ES/htm/ES.201.htm

If the wife died before your dad, then all of his assets go to his kids. The only note here is that the property acquired during the marriage would actually partially belong to the wife's heirs.

You'll definitely want to talk with a probate attorney to get this handled. The normal process is called "Determination of Heirship with request for Independent Administration." Our office handles tons of these cases in Collin County, and the Collin County Probate Court is often thought of as one of the best in the state! ... Read More
Q. My sister is the executor/ primary beneficiary of my mother's will. So how can i insure she is true to the beneficiaries
A: This is why you should have an attorney help you. Your attorney could help get a copy of the will AND make sure that the executor follows the law.

Just to do the above, the cost is actually usually pretty low. So, I'd recommend reaching out to an attorney in the area where the probate case is being handled. Be sure to consult with an attorney with probate law experience.
