PROBATE

Probate is a legal process in which final debts are settled and legal title to property is formally passed from the deceased person to his or her heirs. 

While the death of a loved one is always difficult, the probate process need not be. Our attorneys have the credentials, experience and expertise to counsel you in the matters of estate planning, probate administration, and other legal concerns. 

The basic process of probating an estate includes: 

  • Collecting all probate property of the decedent

  • Paying all debts, claims and taxes owed by the estate 

  • Collecting all rights to income, dividends, etc.

  • Settling any disputes

  • Distributing or transferring the remaining property to the heirs.
