Summary

My immediate family farms throughout New Mexico, West Texas and Oklahoma. In fact, my grandfather drove a tractor until the day that he passed at the ripe old age of 89. As they say where I’m from: "He died with his cowboy boots on."

I was in my first semester of law school at that time, and the probate process was so traumatizing to my family that I was sure the attorney had committed malpractice. As it turned out, he did exactly what most probate attorneys do. I knew then that I could do much better, and I've been doing it ever since. I work relentlessly to plan for and guide families through a difficult process as quickly and easily as possible so that they can get back to what’s important: being with their loved ones.

After my personal experiences with the loss of a loved one, I take great satisfaction in knowing that I am taking care of good people and avoiding the pitfalls that my family went through.

Legal Answers
6 Questions Answered

Q. AUNT IS TRUSTEE / EXECUTOR OF ESTATE. I AM NAMED AS A BENEFICIARY. HOW LONG MUST I WAIT BEFORE RECIEVE MY PART
A: Smaller estates are usually settled within a year in Texas, especially when there are little or no debts. The larger and more complex the estate is, that usually means the longer it will take before the executor can settle the debts and make the distributions. The reason executors often wait until all of the debts are settled before they make distributions to the beneficiaries is because they could potentially be liable to the creditors if they make a premature distribution and don't have enough left over to pay all of the creditors.
Q. My father committed suicide in 2006 & left No will how can we get my moms name on the deed or sell it?
A: If your father only had children with your mother, then your mother can have an Affidavit of Heirship prepared so she can sell the house (assuming they were married). If he did have children from a previous relationship, then you might still be able to do this, but it gets more complicated because the children will also be heirs.
Q. My mother passed away 12/29/2016, my sister is the executor of her will. She refuses to finalize the estate.
A: You can ask for an accounting of the estate since it's been more than 15 months since she was appointed (assuming she has been), that gives the executor 60 days to reply and usually gets the ball rolling again. Speak with a probate attorney about how to do this. If the will hasn't been probated then you only have 2 more years to begin the process, otherwise it may not be valid.
Q. I need an authorization for my granddaughters estate although she had no estate or bills or amounts due for w-2s
A: There may be no reason to open up a probate case if your granddaughter had no assets. I would need more details to answer this for sure though.
Q. Small estate affidavit question
A: Typically the bank will only distribute your share to you, and the other heirs will have to go in with the small estate affidavit copy to withdraw their portion. However, I have known banks to distribute the entire account to an heir who brought in the affidavit, so you never know. It depends on the bank.
Q. person ùwhom deliberately distroys a persons will still eligible to become heir after it was valdated they burned the wi
A: If they deliberately destroyed the will, then legally speaking that was not a successful revocation of it. In Texas you can still have witnesses who knew about the will and its contents testify to prove that it existed and should still be carried out. This is a complex issue and should be handled by an experienced probate attorney.
