The Probate Court’s Continuing Legal Education Series continues on Wednesday, September 25, 2019, with a presentation on “Heirships for Applicant’s Attorneys and Attorneys ad Litem.” Clint Alexander, local attorney and former Law Clerk to Judge Herman, will lead the discussion.

The CLE presentation will cover a wide range of topics related to heirships, including (but not limited to) 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?
  • Services 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

Have another specific topic you’d like to have addressed? Please email and let us know.

We will meet in Judge Herman’s courtroom from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Check-in will be in the hall outside room 217 of the Travis County Courthouse, 1000 Guadalupe Street, beginning at 10:15 a.m.

The session is free, but sign-ups are required so we can guarantee enough space for the people who attend. If you’d like to come, please register on Eventbrite, and provide all requested information.

To be fair to everyone who would like to come, we would appreciate your not signing up unless you are fairly certain that you will be there.
