What happens to my estate after I die?
What happens to my estate after I die? When you die, everything you own becomes your estate. Your executor will administer your estate, which means the executor will go through the process of making sure your assets are transferred to your beneficiaries.
The entire process could take a several months, depending on the complexity of your estate. As noted, if you die without a will or trust, you’re considered to have died “intestate,” and the probate court will follow Texas intestate succession laws to determine who inherits your assets. Probating an estate of a person who died without a will, is more expensive, complex, and time-consuming.
