    1. The probate judge in Bastrop is the County Court Judge. 2. A will should be self proving, if it is not then additional proof will be required at the hearing in order to prove up the will. 3. Not mandatory, but some courts will not let you probate the will without an attorney and especially if it is not self proven.

    Unfortunately no, the property is likely not divisible so if the disagreeable sister pushes the issue and hires an attorney that knows what they are doing she could file suit to partition or sell the property. The best chance is to see if your father can buy out the other sister.

    If there is a minor involved, it is likely that the sale will require the probate court's approval and the court will determine what percentage is fair.
