What Is Probate?

When someone passes away, an important question arises: what happens to that person's finances, assets, property, retirement accounts, and more? Probate helps us figure that out. Probate is a court-supervised proceeding that helps delegate the person's will, with the end result of transferring property to the heirs. This will mainly be the duty of the executor, whose responsibilities include:

  • finding and filing the will with the probate court;

  • notifying all agencies and companies of their loved one's death;

  • representing the estate;

  • paying debts & taxes;

  • distributing assets;

  • and more.

What Happens If Someone Passes Without a Will or Trust?

Preparing for your future is important, and I can guide you through your estate planning needs, such as wills, trusts, and more. However, if your loved one has passed without planning their estate, delegating where their assets have gone, the estate will be transferred through the probate court according to current laws of intestacy, often where litigation between possible heirs will occur. As your attorney, I can help you figure out what to do next if your loved one passed away without a will.
