Popular Questions

1. How much will probate cost?

Pricing for probate services will depend on the estate and the circumstances surrounding each case. We will discuss fees during our initial consultation.

2. How long will probate take?

Due to the unique aspects of each estate, there is no set time frame for probate in Texas. We have seen simpler estates complete probate in only a few short months and conversely, have had clients in probate for much lengthier timelines. There are a number of documents and items to consider, so the timeline will depend on the circumstances of each estate.

3. Is this all I need to do?

It depends. However, one of the benefits of working with a probate legal professional team like Phillips and Phillips is that we have more than 40 years of combined experience in this field. We will advise you on all that is necessary to properly distribute the estate.

4. Will probate be necessary?

Deciding whether or not you need an entire probate court proceeding is determined by lots of factors, such as assets, total estate value, the executor’s ability or willingness to serve, etc. So necessity is determined on a case-by-case basis. We will advise you on your options.
