Guadalupe County Probate

With over one hundred and sixty thousand Texans calling Guadalupe County home, it’s no surprise Guadalupe County has the second highest amount of probate cases in the whole Greater San Antonio Metro.

While Texas probate laws carry similarities throughout the state, each probate case is handled in their respective county. Because of this, it is important to understand the differences in how probate cases are handed in each county.

Guadalupe County Probate Courts

Guadalupe County is one of several Texas counties that have at-least one statutory probate court. These courts hear exclusively probate and guardianship cases and cases related to probates and guardianships.

The information for the Guadalupe County Probate Court can be found below.

While the judges for all probate courts have agreed to the County Local Court Rules, each judge has their own manner of operating their court and for hearing cases. What works for one statutory probate court in Texas, might not work in a statutory probate court in Guadalupe County.

So you have to consult the local rules and then know the procedures for each court. This is why it often helps to hire a probate attorney who regularly handles cases in the Guadalupe County probate courts.
