How to handle the role of executor

Typically, Texas residents and other people throughout the country are asked to be the executors of their parents or spouses' estates. There are several tasks that an executor must complete to navigate probate successfully. The first step is to find the will and guard the estate's property. This could mean gathering mail and changing the locks on a home. Locating the will is critical because it will be needed to start the probate process.

Handling debts for a surviving spouse after death

Many married couples in Texas may wonder how their debts are handled after death, especially for their surviving spouse. There is often a significant amount of confusion about the liability a surviving spouse may have for any debt accumulated by their partner before their debt. When a person passes away, their debts are paid from their estate; the money and property they leave behind typically pass through probate.
