    Default Can Probate Court Notices be Sent to Heirs by Email

    My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: TEXAS

    is it legal for the estate attorney to send notices to heirs by registered email (like RMAIL or RPOST) ?

    Thank you

    Default Re: Notices to Heirs by Email

    It is not illegal, but it may not be effective notice. It matters what sort of notice the attorney is sending, too. Generally speaking for notices or citations that are required for the personal representative for the estate to send to beneficiaries the notice must be provided in one of the ways specified in sections 51.051 through 51.056 of the Texas Estates Code. Failure to send it in a manner required by the Estates Code may render the notice ineffective.
