Houston Heirship Probate Attorney
What is Heirship, you may ask? Well, it’s defined as “the quality or condition of being heir, or the relation between the heir and his ancestor.” An “Heir” is someone who inherits property from someone who dies without a Will.
When a family member or loved one dies without leaving a will or legal documentation of his or her wishes, the process of dividing up the remaining property and belongings is usually complicated and can result in disputes among family members. At the Law Office of Troy M. Moore, PLLC, we are available to provide representation to individuals who are the direct heirs to property in the absence of a will. We are here to help your problems and are conveniently located on the Northwest side of Houston for all your probate and heirship attorney needs.
Representing Your Interests As You Seek To Be An Appointed Administrator.
As your probate attorney for your heirship case, we will investigate the situation and the circumstances surrounding the property, evaluating family dynamics and any informal instructions that may have been left by the deceased. Almost always, these disputes are resolved through lawsuits in probate court. Our attorneys are prepared to represent your interests and advocate to ensure that you are provided what you should rightfully be granted. The court will judge the case according to the laws of Descent and Distribution to determine which individuals and family members are rightful heirs to the property, dividing what the decedent has left among the heirs. This could include granting certain percentages of ownership on pieces of property, including real estate.
What is Going to Happen with the House?
Real estate and homes are the most common focal point of estate inheritance matters. It is important to formally resolve these issues to prevent a break in the chain of title, thus establishing the subsequent owners. This will help the family avoid issues in title and ownership should they try to sell the property.
We are highly skilled in handling these matters, understanding the laws and statutes that guide judges in their decisions. The attorney will prepare a sound case on your behalf and advocate to protect your interests.
