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
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.
