Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in Texas

I am a probate attorney in California and I have a client whose deceased husband owned separate property in Texas. The real property is valued at approximately $37,000. Husband was a resident of California at the time of his death and he had a trust and a pour-over will. The real property was not titled in the name of the trust.

Is there a summary proceeding in Texas which does not involve filing for a full probate proceeding?

Yes. You can do an ancillary probate in Texas, if the will was probated in CA. If the will was not probated in another state, then you can do a muniment of title (summary procedure) in TX. Both are quick and painless.
