Letters of Testamentary Intent

Help from a Dallas Probate Attorney with Years of Experience

If you have been named the executor or administrator of a will, before you can access the decedent’s bank accounts or other assets, you need to be approved by the courts through letters of testamentary intent. These letters serve as authentication for you to be able to act on behalf of the deceased. If you find yourself in this situation, our Dallas probate lawyer can help you to navigate this difficult time.

How Do I Obtain Letters of Testamentary Intent?

To obtain letters of testamentary intent, you’ll need to go to the appropriate courthouse in your area and file the appropriate paperwork.

To acquire letters of testamentary intent, you will need to provide the court with several pieces of evidence including:

  • The decedent’s will
  • Witness testimony that it is the decedent’s final will
  • Proof that the decedent passed away within the past four years
  • An application for the letters
  • Proof that you have not been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor
  • Proof of your mental competence to carry out the will

After the hearing, if you are approved, the letters should be sent to you within about a month. Then begins the process of distributing the estate on the decedent’s behalf. After a time, depending on your method of administrating the estate, you may be required to sign an affidavit detailing which beneficiaries have received their assets, so it is important that you keep a very organized account of your actions.
