Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hi and welcome back to JA. Ray here again.
This would be the judge interpreting the will and the instructions which might be a codicil here based on how it is worded.The Texas Estate Code provides for this.You can also seek a family settlement and avoid any further litigation here.
Settlement seems like a good idea and would save you more legal fees and costs. You should push your lawyer to explore this.Be careful of lawyers keeping this stuff going in order to run your bill. Be firm in what you want as an outcome, settlement here and not dragging out the bill.
Thanks again I appreciate the chance to help you.
