What To Expect During The Probate Process

Generally speaking, probate is the legal process by which a deceased person's will is validated, his or her assets are collected and appraised, his or her debts and taxes are paid off, and the remaining property is distributed according to the terms of the will. If there is no will in place, then state law determines what should happen to the property.

A personal representative, who is named by the decedent or selected by the court, oversees the probate process and manages the assets until they have been properly distributed to heirs. Of course, this isn't always an easy job, which is why many personal representatives and families turn to probate lawyers for help.

While the probate of smaller estates can take up to 120 days, the probate of larger estates can take longer, depending on the complexity of the estate and whether any disputes arise.

Having an experienced lawyer on your side can help to avoid unnecessary delays and complications, especially when estates involving numerous properties or significant assets are involved. If a will contest or trust litigation does arise, we can help you reach a resolution.
