Customer Question

I am looking for template for a letter tu be used for a deceased brother who left no will. We are recording an affidavit of heirship so I can act as an executor is that appropiate
JA: Dealing with estate issues can be complex, but getting accurate information now will save you headaches -- and potentially heartache! -- down the road. Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?
Customer: Texas
JA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: Yes they are the ones filing but it's up to me to send out these letters to the creditors. Should I be asking the lawyer here
JA: What advice did they give you? Is there anything else important you think the Estate Lawyer should know?
Customer: They told me to let the creditors contact me when they don't get paid and refer them to them ( the lawyers) that just doesn't seem like the right thing to do
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Estate Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry for your loss. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. What state is the probate going to take place in?

2. Do you know who the creditors are?
