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.
