Heirship Proceedings

Proceedings to determine heirship are sometimes necessary when a loved one dies without a Will. In an heirship proceeding, the court will ensure that the actual “heirs at law” are identified and located, and the law determines each heir’s entitlement to the estate. Procedurally, it is somewhat more complicated than a typical probate, and the procedure tends to cost more in attorneys’ fees in order to get the estate finally settled.

At the Law Office of Russell Frost, we understand the complexities of heirship proceedings. Not only do we represent applicants in heirship proceedings, but we are often appointed by the Travis County Probate Court to represent unknown heirs or heirs with legal disability to an estate. In short, we handle a lot of heirship proceedings, and we’d love to put our experience to work for you.
