To remove an executor, one must file a petition with the appropriate probate court and prove a good reason for the removal.
What if the deceased person owns property in multiple states?Two probates may be required if the decedent lived in one state but left solely-owned real estate in another. This means the estate executor may have to open two probate proceedings in two states.
Do I need an attorney for estate planning in Texas?You are not legally required to hire an attorney for estate planning in Texas. However, estate law is complicated and can have serious consequences if mismanaged.
Can I probate an estate without a will in Texas?Yes. Texas has default inheritance rules for when a person dies “intestate” or without a will. If the decedent were married, the assets would be transferred to their spouse.
