A lot of people wonder how long they have to file for probate of someone’s estate. In Texas, it is generally four years if you want to have an administration of the Estate with an Executor or Administrator being appointed. You can file after four years for an Heirship, Small Estate Affidavit, or to probate a Will as a Muniment of Title only. There are many caveats and ins-and-outs. I give free phone and office consultations on all potential probates. Contact a Houston Probate Attorney today to get the answers to your questions.
