Whether you or a loved one passes away with a will or without a will, in most cases, Texas Law requires that the estate left behind must go through what’s called Probate.
When your loved one left a will, he or she appointed what’s known as an Executor to administer his or her estate. It’s the Executor’s job to determine what assets were left, gather up those assets and distribute them according to the terms of the will.
When your loved one dies intestate, there is no executor named and so the court names one for you! You may not like who they pick.
