Probate is the legal process through which a deceased person’s estate is distributed to heirs and designated beneficiaries and any debt owed to creditors is paid off. In general, probate property is distributed according to the decedent’s last will and testament if a valid will exists, or according to state law if no will exists.
Nobody really wants to think about death, wills, and the probate process. Unfortunately, though, we all die eventually – and many of us will have at least some type of contact with probate at some point in our lives. Regardless of how your involvement with probate comes about, it’s important to know that you don’t have to handle things on your own. In fact, there are at least ten good reasons why you might need a probate lawyer.
