The City of Pearland is a principal city of the Greater Houston Area, and is located south of Houston. It is primarily located within Brazoria County, but portions of the city extend into Harris County and Fort Bend County.
It is of utmost importance to start the probate process in the correct jurisdiction. Probates filed in the incorrect court will very likely be thrown out even after going through all the steps, which is further complicated due to each court in Texas having its own set of probate proceedings and conditions.
However, our team of probate attorneys in Pearland are committed to handling cases and guide clients, including the intricacies of the different county probate court systems.
Since the probate process will take place in the county that the decedent resided, Pearland probate cases will be held within either Brazoria County, Harris County, or Fort Bend County.
Brazoria County is not one of the Texas counties that have at least one statutory probate court. Statutory probate courts hear exclusively probate and guardianship cases and cases related to probates and guardianships. Probate cases are handled by the County Courts at Law in Brazoria County–and there are four such courts in the county.

Keep in mind that each judge has their own manner hearing cases and operating their court. What works in one court in Fort Bend County may very well not work in another court in Fort Bend County.
