No one desires to be in the middle of Probate, but when it happens, make a wise decision regarding your legal representation.
PROBATE- What is it?
When someone has a last will and testament and they die, the court will then be responsible for proving the authenticity of the will. If there is not a last will and testament, then probate court will decide an administrator, identify the heirs to the Decedent, and distribute the assets in question. If you have a bank account with a balance of $50,000 or more and/or land in your name and do not have a trust with a named heir, your assets will then go into probate after death to have the heirs decided for you.
Why does it seem scary?
It seems scary because, really it can be if you do not have an established and well-versed attorney on your side. Probate is never a desired outcome for your heirs, nor is it a desired outcome for your legacy after death. If you have been researching options for your assets after death, we suggest you look into developing an estate plan for yourself and your family. If you are a family member of a recently deceased person and you feel you are entitled to their assets, give us a call today to schedule a consultation and get the process started. We would love to help you during this difficult time so that you and your family can move forward.
