Plano Probate

Plano, Texas Probate

Plano Probate Attorney

When y0u begin the probate process the first step is submitting an application for probate. You must submit this application the proper Texas probate court in the county where the decedent resided. In the city of Plano this is generally Collin County. If the decedent resided in a part of Plano that was within Denton County then you must file the application for probate in Denton County.

It is of great importance to start the probate process in the correct jurisdiction. Probates filed in the incorrect court will likely be thrown out even after going through all the steps. This is further complicated by each court in Texas having its own set of probate proceedings and qualifications. Before filing, it’s best you consult with an attorney about the county or counties where you feel your probate should be handled.
