Helping Clients with Affidavits of Heirship
In the State of Texas, Affidavits of Heirship can be prepared by a probate attorney to in order to transfer estate property to a deceased person’s surviving family members. Often, an affidavit of heirship is used when the decedent did not leave a will, or did leave a will, but the will was not probated. They may also be used when estate administration is not needed for the person who passed away.
Affidavits of heirship must be signed and sworn to before a notary public by a person who knew the decedent and his or her family history, or a family member who will not benefit financially from the filing of the affidavit of heirship.
Losing a loved one is never easy, but by speaking with an attorney who specializes in probate and estate administration, you ensure that what a family member leaves behind is never lost.
