3. Is it mandatory to have an Attorney for probating a Will in Texas? Wife and my will are very vanilla with no minor children. Thank you, Ernie
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.
