Montgomery County is home to more than six hundred thousand Texans. A remarkable figure considering only half this many people lived in Montgomery County in the year 2000.
Such a large amount of people calls for large amounts of probate cases. While the Texas probate laws are largely uniform across the state, the probate system and process varies from county to county.

Contested probate matters are by appointment but typically on Thursday afternoons. The information for County Court at Law 2 can be found below.
The judges for all Montgomery County courts have agreed to the Montgomery County local court rules, but each judge has their own manner of hearing cases and operating their court. What works in one court in Texas may very well not work in another court in Montgomery County.
What this then ultimately highlights, is the importance of consulting the local rules and procedures for each court. This is also the reason many individuals opt to hire a probate attorney who regularly handles cases in the Montgomery County Court at Law 2.
