    Default Filing for Executor Texas

    My father passed away leaving a hand wriiten note leaving his property/home etc.. to his children and me (his daughter) to be in charge. I was told by the county clerks office that the note is considerd a will and I will need to fill out a Hiership form? I did purchase the form but it states it use is for someone who did not leave a will and I am really confused. can someone point me in the right direction, I dont want to file the paperwork and it be a waste of time and money. I just need to know what correct forms I should fill out. Thanks in advance for your time

    You need a real lawyer to make sure that everything is done right. Relying on a clerk might work, but be on the safe side and spend the money.

    Default Filing for Executor Texas

    I agree, trying to do this on my own might not be a good idea. also I do not live in Texas so I will have to do some searching on probate lawyers in that area.

    Thanks for your reply it is appreciated

    The last thing you need is to have your family mad at you over "phantom funds."

    Good luck.
