UNDERSTANDING PROBATE LAW

If you have a will, a probate court in your state or county will generally oversee the process of probating, or executing, the will.

Probate is an important part of the estate planning process, and a very serious matter that you need to consider when it comes to estate planning. If you have a will, a probate court in your state or county will generally oversee the process
of probating, or executing, the will. This includes hearing objections, determining the validity of the will, and ensures that property is distributed
properly.

If an individual’s assets exceeds $100,000 and that individual does not have a Trust, the trust estate will have to be probated, even if the individual has a formal written will.

Expenses of Probate Law

Probate can be an expensive and time consuming process. An individual must be appointed as an administrator, probate filing fees will have to be paid, generally an attorney should be hired who will be paid a statutory fee based on the value of the estate at the time of death, and your heirs will have to wait up to six months or longer before a court will order distribution of the estate.

I will work with you to determine the best means for avoiding probating and if necessary help you through the probate process. Working with me, you can get the peace of mind that you deserve by knowing that your affairs are taken care of, in addition to alleviating or reducing the legal costs of administrating your estate.
