Settling Estates With Knowledge And A Passion To Serve Families
When an individual passes, their estate — their financial interests, real property, personal property and outstanding debts — is addressed and settled in probate court. Many families think if their loved one created a will, they do not have to go through probate administration. Whether or not a person had a will upon death, their final affairs are still addressed in probate court.
This makes the process of probate complex and confusing to families. To initiate probate, the court will appoint a personal representative who becomes responsible to gather the deceased’s asset information, notify creditors, pay the final bills and file a final tax return. When this is done, the personal representative then distributes the remaining assets to heirs and beneficiaries.
