Compassionate Client Care
Probate is the legal process of settling the estate of a person after their death. The process involves filing court forms, maintaining careful accounting of assets, settling debts and ultimately, paying the beneficiaries of the estate. The process is handled under the supervision of the court and requires court approval with each step. The entire process can take 6 months to 2 years, depending on the complexity of the estate and the court calendar.
While probate can be avoided with a properly executed trust and estate plan, not everyone has a plan in place when they pass away. We can help you walk through each phase of the probate process or manage the process for you.
