What to Expect During the Probate Process
After a loved one passes away, you'll be responsible for probating their will as their executor. This can seem overwhelming, but the probate process can be a breeze with an experienced estate lawyer by your side. When you retain attorney Britton, he'll make sure you know what to expect when the court administers your loved one's estate.
Here's what will happen during probate: a probate court judge will review the will thoroughly to make sure it's valid. Then, the judge will hear from anyone who wishes to contest the will. Once the will has been authenticated, the judge will identify and notify any creditors to ensure that all debts are paid. Finally, the probate court will distribute the estate.
If your loved one died without a will in place, you will still need to probate their estate. A probate judge will determine how their assets should be divided and how their debts will be paid.
