What is Probate?

It is a legal process of distributing your assets after your death.  Paperwork is submitted to the Probate Court where it will be determined if the Last Will and Testament is valid and the executor is granted the power to distribute your assets, or if there is no will, an administrator is named to distribute assets.  This process can be tedious, time consuming, and sometimes costly.  The executor will need to gather information about all assets and liabilities and follow the law regarding distributions.  Public notice must take place for a set period of time.  Elder Law Firm can help you through this process.  Please contact us for a 15-minute consultation to discuss your situation.
