We Are Your Probate And Estate Administration Resource
When you lose a family member, the grief you may feel can often be compounded by the stress and worry of distributing their estate in a manner they would have preferred. If there was little or no estate planning done beforehand, or if the probate process is poorly executed, the situation can become even more complicated.
At the Law Offices of Aurelio Leo Lara in McAllen, Texas, we have decades of experience assisting families in Texas probate and estate administration matters. A lawyer from our firm can help you administer your loved one’s estate, regardless of its size or complexity. If you feel that an estate to which you are a party is not being administered properly, we can help you contest a will or trust and protect your interests.
We Know The Probate Process
Our firm has helped many people with Hidalgo County probate procedures. We can walk you through each step of the process, whether or not your loved one left a will. We can help you develop an affidavit of heirship if there are real estate properties that need this document to establish the identity and interests of those who stand to inherit it.
Contesting The Terms Of A Will Or Trust
Of course, in some situations a loved one may have left a will, but you may be concerned as to whether it truly reflects their intentions related to their estate.
There are several primary reasons that you may want to contest a will or the terms of a trust:
- There is doubt about the person’s testamentary capacity or legal ability to understand what they were doing when they signed the will
- Undue influence was exercised on the person making the will by another party, skewing the decisions they would have ordinarily made
- There are questions about whether the will was executed properly or conforms to state law requirements for the document to be valid
An attorney from our firm can review the will or trust documents with you, and challenge them if we feel there is a case to be made for contesting it. We will ensure that your interests in the estate are represented fairly.
