What Does Probate Involve?
After a death, the process of administering the deceased's estate is known as probate. This process involves many steps which may include:
- Paying final bills
- Paying taxes and settling tax matters
- Notifying creditors of death
- Inventorying and valuing assets
- Identifying beneficiaries
- Distribution of assets to beneficiaries
The deceased's will serves as a guide throughout the probate process. Any trusts that were created generally do not go through the probate process. There are many legal details that need to be worked out, and having an attorney help you through the process can be highly beneficial.
Whether you are facing the probate process or whether you are already in it and have encountered some sort of dispute with a family member or other party, we can help you seek a cost-effective resolution. It is recommended to act sooner rather than later if you are involved in a probate-related dispute.
