Emergency Intervention for Funeral and Burial Expenses

Posted by John Henry | Aug 21, 2014 | 0 Comments

The loss of a loved one is never easy, and certainly, not so when funeral expenses are not covered by a preneed burial plan, insurance policy, or accessible funds of either the deceased individual or the surviving family or friends.  Readily, family members seek out the financial assistance of relatives, and unfortunately, despite best efforts, sometimes the family will not come together to pay funeral and/or burial expenses.  

Fortunately, in cases like this, Texas law may allow a court to grant an application for emergency intervention for funeral and burial expenses ordering the financial institution holding funds of the deceased individual to pay to the funeral home up to $5000.00, including attorney's fees and court costs.  The application must meet certain requirements.  Discussing this alternative with a qualified attorney can save surviving family members distress and some unnecessary indebtedness.
