The Probate Court’s Continuing Legal Education Series continues on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, 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?
  • 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

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 about 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 use this link, 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.
