Assistance Navigating Probate
Probate is a court-supervised process that is used to wind up the affairs of a deceased person and distribute their assets to the people entitled to receive them. There are instances where probate may not be necessary, or where a limited probate may meet the needs of the estate. Regardless of the situation, you really need an experienced probate lawyer to take charge of the process, handle the legal and financial chores that arise, and ensure that the distribution occurs lawfully and fairly.
