How Probate Works

Probate is the process of distributing your loved one’s assets and property following their death. The process is often unavoidable, but it can go quickly if your loved one’s wishes are clearly written and up-to-date. The length of time it takes can depend on your family’s unique situation, but our experienced attorneys are available to guide you every step of the way.

Common issues to resolve in probate include:

  • Whether or not your loved one had a will

  • Determining if the will is up-to-date

  • Identifying an executor for the estate

  • Paying off any debts owed on the estate before passing it onto beneficiaries

  • Settling potential disputes between family members

Our attorneys have carefully handled this process for many families. It is our goal to ensure the process goes smoothly to save you time, money, and heartache during the process. Ultimately, we want to do what is best for your family during this difficult time.
