Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hello I am a licensed practicing attorney with 20 years’ experience hopefully I can help with your problem. Please give me a moment to review and respond to your question.
If there was a Will do you know if a probate occurred in the state of Texas? For him to transfer the property into his name there would have to be a final order in the probate case giving him the property.
If probate did indeed happen, I would contact the court clerk in the county where your brother passed away and see if you can get a copy of the probate file and the Will as well which would have been filed in the case. Your brother should have given you notice as an heir to your deceased brother's estate for the probate action. If he did not this would be grounds to go in and have the probate final order overturned.
If you have any other question please let me know otherwise I would love a 5 star rating. Thanks!
I am a different Attorney. If the real property was left to you and other siblings in a will and your oldest brother transferred the title into his name alone you have an action against him. Do you either a copy of the Will or did he record the title to the real property into his name?
