Understanding the Probate Process in Bell County

Probate refers to the court-supervised process of distributing a deceased person’s assets. During probate, a personal representative (executor) is appointed by the court to conduct the administration of the decedent’s estate.

This process is necessary for most estates in Texas. However, there are typically many assets left that do not need to go through probate.

Generally, probate is only required if:

  • The property was owned solely by the decedent
  • The property was a share of property that was held as tenants in common
