Probate & Estate Administration Disputes


Sometimes things do not go as planned in probate. Estate administration disputes can occur when families are so divided that they cannot even agree about who should be the administrator of an estate. Other times, the issue is that someone in the family was appointed the estate administrator, but then failed to do their job correctly. More complications can arise if there is community property involved and there are disagreements between the heirs about the categorization of property as community property or separate property, and how to divide such property under Texas community property laws.

Either way, these probate disputes only lead to increased administration expenses and further delays in distributing the assets to the heirs. A probate attorney can assist families with implementing solutions to quiet these disputes. Solutions can include a family settlement agreement, qualifying a third party to serve as administrator, or obtaining additional court supervision over the actions of the existing court-appointed administrator, among other things. Each problem requires a different solution and a probate attorney can assist families with crafting the right solution to solve your estate administration issues.
