Probate Court Cases

The term probate translates from Latin literally as "proof" and has come to mean the act or process of proving a will in Texas legal procedures. Jurisdiction of probate courts in Texas includes probate matters and matters involving the guardianship of incapacitated persons and minors. Probate and guardianship cases deal neither with crimes nor damages but with protecting the wishes, rights, and obligations of persons regarding their property when these persons are unable to do so as a result of death or incapacitating illness, either physical or mental.  The County Clerk's office maintains the Probate and Guardianship case files for the Probate court.
