What is probate and how can you help?
In simple terms, probate is the legal process through which a deceased person's estate is properly distributed to any and all beneficiaries, and any debt owed to creditors is paid off. In probate matters, the court will appoint an individual to pay any remaining bills and taxes on the estate before distributing the remaining assets and property to the beneficiaries. Our firm can help iron out the details of probate proceedings and ensure that all pertinent matters are taken care of during the process of distributing estate assets and properties. Of course, probate can be avoided, should you choose to go through the steps of proper estate planning.
