Probate & Estate Planning

We understand how unpleasant probate and estate planning can be. At Zarka Allen Law Firm, PLLC, we are committed to streamlining the process while looking out for your best interests. Based in downtown San Antonio, our firm serves clients throughout Bexar County.  

What is Probate?

When a person passes away, his or her estate goes through a court-supervised process called probate. Typically the process involves several steps, including: 

  1. Verification of the will's authenticity
  2. Taking an inventory of all assets
  3. Paying any outstanding taxes and debts
  4. Distributing assets as specified by the will

Our firm is dedicated to minimizing your stress during this difficult time, and we pledge to provide prompt, straightforward communication throughout the process.

Planning For The Future

Many people find the topic of estate planning uncomfortable. If you are concerned about asset protection, however, it is essential to have a plan for what will happen to your property when you are gone. We can assist you with a number of estate planning services, including:

  • Drafting a will
  • Creating a trust
  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care directives

According to state law, property in Texas must stay in Texas unless estate planning documents specifically designate otherwise. Therefore, if you have family out of state, it is in your best interest to work with an attorney who is highly familiar with a ll of the legal details.

How Does Estate Planning Affect Military Families?

While estate planning is important for everyone to think about, it is particularly critical for military families. Services members put their lives on the line for our country - and if the worst should happen, you want a plan in place to make sure your family is well cared for. 

Unfortunately, a quick trip to the Judge Advocate General (JAG) office does not always cover everything necessary for a Texas estate plan. Please give us a call to discuss how we can be of service.
