99% of our clients' assets are not frozen during the probate process. When there is a valid will, Texas laws provide for one of the shortest probate processes compared to other states. Our first priority is getting the Executor appointed. This can generally be accomplished within 30 - 60 days, depending on the court. Badeaux & Associates practices in Harris County, Galveston County and Brazoria County. Once appointed, the Executor or Administrator of the estate has access to funds to pay all re-occurring expenses, for example mortgage, car payments and utilities, as well as funeral expenses and medical bills.
