What does it mean to be a beneficiary?

After the death of a loved one, many Texas residents find it comforting to learn that their family member left something behind for them. In some cases, the assets could be of value, or they could be sentimental. Whatever the case, individuals are often keen on obtaining the bequests intended for them.

Should I be a personal representative?

If someone named you as their personal representative, it probably means that you held a position of trust. Your loved one probably had confidence that you would make the right decisions about the estate. However, the Texas inheritance process is not something you have to navigate by yourself.

Which estates need probate in Texas?

You would not typically have to go through probate in Texas for estates worth less than $75,000. This is good news for people who qualify, as the loss of a loved one is devastating enough without adding the potential stress of the often-complex probate process. However, even if the value of the estate is under the limit, you may still need to do some legal work in order to make sure that you transfer the assets properly and incur the minimum tax penalty.
