The Probate Court’s Continuing Legal Education Series continues on Wednesday, May 25, 2022, with a presentation on “Heirships for Applicant’s Attorneys and Attorneys ad Litem.” Michael Jones, Senior Probate Staff Attorney, will lead the discussion.

The CLE presentation will cover a wide range of topics related to heirships, including the following –

  • Drafting documents for heirship cases: getting them right the first time
  • The Travis County Probate Court’s heirship setting request forms – how they can help you and the Court
  • What are the most common problems we see when we’re checking to see if an heirship is ready to set – and how can you avoid those problems?
  • Service and waiver issues in heirships
  • What are your responsibilities when you’re an Attorney ad Litem in an heirship case?
  • Hints for working with your Attorney ad Litem when you’re the Applicant’s attorney in an heirship
  • The rules of intestate succession in Texas, from the basics to more complex family situations, including common-law marriages and adoptions
