What is the Probate Process?

Probate can be a lengthy process, and it typically involves court-managed administrations if there was no will or trust left by the deceased individual.

If you have found yourself in the probate process, you can generally expect the following:

  • A notification will be delivered to individuals that an existing will names, or if no will exists, a list of next-of-kin will be provided and they will receive notification of the probate process
  • The probate court will appoint an executor or administrator for the estate in question
  • A court-appointed individual will oversee the inventory, appraisal, and sale of assets in the estate
  • Payment received from the sale of the estates will be used to pay off debts and taxes in the appropriate states
  • Remaining assets will be distributed amount heirs or next-of-kin

Can Probate be Avoided?

For most individuals, avoiding probate is ideal. Probate can be avoided with the assistance of an experienced attorney, and well-drafted wills and trusts. There are a variety of options available to individuals that can either streamline the process of probate or avoid it all together. A Montgomery County probate attorney from Sallen Law can help determine what legal documentation may right for you and your family in order to avoid probate.

Administration of an Estate, Contesting a Will & the Probate Process

If you have been named the administrator or executor of an estate, you can still obtain legal assistance. Likewise, if you are an heir or individual that feels that there may be an error in a will, an attorney could help you contest the will. Regardless of the situation that you may find yourself in, Sallen Law can help with the probate process.
