“Probate” is the process whereby a Court supervises the transfer of assets from a deceased person to his or her heirs. Probate requires the filing of particular and complicated legal forms, and the entire process is supervised by the Probate Court in the county in which the decedent resided at the time of death.
Whether you are in need of a will or someone close to you has passed on, probate law and the issues surrounding the probate process can be difficult and time consuming. It is often better to speak with a probate attorney and make plans to avoid loved ones from having to guess as to your wishes.
