Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.
To clarify: you are not a beneficiary on your father's will, but you are a beneficiary under your second-cousin's will?
If an individual dies intestate (without a will), Texas Probate Code determines the beneficiaries of the individual's estate. If a second individual (Person B) passes away within a certain period of time after the first individual (Person A), then Person A's estate passes over Person B's estate for purposes of intestacy law. Therefore, depending on the familial circumstances, you may be a beneficiary of the second cousin's estate.
