Every day more Texans search for alternatives to the two century-old traditional process of probate. Texans know they can save money, they know they can save time, and they know they can take control of the delicate probate process. The twenty-first century has seen the arrival of the internet and the departure of traditional attorney-client probate. In regards to probate, the question of “Is it easy to go through the probate process yourself in Texas?” arises.
Without any prior insight into the probate process, at first glance, it can seem scary. Among the common difficulties with probate are different laws in each county, a process that often takes over a year, and different complexities for each estate.
