Probate Probate

Probate is the court-supervised process that takes place after an individual has passed away, regardless of whether or not they have a will. Through Probate, the court oversees the distribution of the deceased person’s property. You need an experienced attorney to guide you through the process, and help minimize your costs in terms of both time and money.

During Probate Administration, the representative of the estate—usually known as the Executor—with the attorney’s guidance, takes control of the decedent’s assets, including real estate, bank accounts, investments, and personal property. The Executor and Attorney work together to appraise the property, pay off the debts of the estate, account for expenditures and income, and finally, distribute the property to the beneficiaries. Depending on the estate’s value, payment of estate taxes may also be required. From start to finish, Probate generally takes six months to a year.

For their time and service, the Executor and Attorney each earn a fee, plus reimbursement for expenses. This fee is set by law, and is based on the value of the estate.
