Probate is the court-supervised process of sorting and transferring a person’s property at death. Typically, with a will, property is collected, debts may be paid and then the property is distributed or transferred. There are ways to avoid probate and the associated and costs of probate court.
This is one of the reasons a will alone is often not enough. Our firm has many clients that find themselves needing to go through the probate process and we can help bring clarity and guidance through our representation.
