Guiding You Through The Probate Process
Probate is the legal process where the court assigns someone to administer and distribute assets after a person’s death. Some estates, particularly those of high value or with complex assets like family businesses or retirement accounts, can take more time to probate. Others could be easily settled by an alternative method such as an Affidavit of Heirship or a family settlement agreement.
