Probate Law

Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person by resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person's property under a valid will. A probate court decides the validity of a  will. When necessary interprets the instructions of the deceased, appoints the executor as the personal representative of the estate, and adjudicates the interests of heirs and other parties who may have claims against the estate.

Probate Administration Problems

Many are not aware that they face probate problems until they serve as the executor of the will. Only then do they realize that the will may be several years (or decades) old and does not clearly direct the dispensation of all of the decedent's assets. If you have been named an executor of a will, you should contact an experienced probate law attorney to review and discuss the contents and directives of the will.
