Texas has the simplified probate process for small estates, where the executor of the estate, who is the person designated in a will and who oversees the administration of the estate, may upon request of the probate court authorization to distribute assets without going through a full probate administration. To use this process, the value of the property cannot exceed the amount needed to pay family allowances and particular creditors.
