Collin County Probate

Collin County Probate attorney

Sitting just shy of 1 million people, Collin County is the sixth most populous state in the state of Texas. With nearly a million people calling Collin County home, it’s no surprise to learn that Collin County has a large number of probate cases.

While Texas probate laws carry similarities throughout the state, each probate case is handled in their respective county. Because of this, it is important to understand the differences in how probate cases are handed in each county.

Collin County Probate Courts

Collin County is one of several Texas counties that have at-least one statutory probate court. These courts hear exclusively probate and guardianship cases and cases related to probates and guardianships.

The information for the Collin County Probate Court can be found below:

  • Judge Weldon Copeland
  • 2100 Bloomdale Road, Suite 12360. McKinney, TX 75071
  • (972)548-6463

While the judge for this probate court has agreed to the Collin County Local Court Rules, each judge has their own manner of operating their court and for hearing cases. What works for one statutory probate court in Texas, might not work in a statutory probate court in Collin County.

So you have to consult the local rules and then know the procedures for each court. This is why it often helps to hire a probate attorney who regularly handles cases in the Collin County probate courts.

Collin County Probate Forms

Collin County generally does not provide probate forms to the public. This includes forms for muniment of title, affidavit of heirships, and small estate affidavits.

The clerk’s office will typically refer users to the Collin County Law Library for this.
