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
The funds and assets that pass through probate must pass through the following
- 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.
