Brazoria County is one of the larger counties that make up the Houston area. According to the US Census Bureau, almost 13% of the population is over the age of 65. Compared to neighboring Harris County this is 40% more individuals, by percentage, over the age of 65.
This may sound unimportant, but there is a chance that this is the reason you found this web page in the first place. Unfortunately, with an older demographic comes more death, and with more death comes more probate cases.
While Texas probate laws are largely uniform throughout the state, since each probate process is carried out in its respective county, it is important that you understand the differences in the probate process for each county.
