About the Probate Process

In probate, the assets and property that compose a person's estate are distributed to the proper recipients. This can be especially tedious when there is no will involved, as the executor is responsible for dispersing the estate in a way that satisfies both creditors and heirs under court supervision.

The funds and assets that pass through probate must pass through the following processes:

  • Payment to creditors
  • Sale of property
  • Appraisal and inventory
  • Distribution to heirs and beneficiaries

The executor responsible for this task will be chosen in a court hearing. In some cases, if no executor can be found, or if the executor relinquishes their responsibility, the court will administer the probate process. To ensure that loved one's estate is handled efficiently and in a way that complies with state laws, contact my firm today. I can serve as your attorney during this time and ensure that the legal process is simplified and beneficial for everyone involved.
