Probate is the court proceeding through which a will is determined valid, and the estate of the deceased is administered. The process typically includes liquidation of estate assets, payment of necessary taxes, and distribution of property to heirs.
We can wisely counsel you as to how to avoid the sometimes time-consuming, expensive probate process or guide you through it, as well as handle non-probate transfers of your loved one's assets. If no will exists, state law will determine how the assets of the estate will be distributed.
