Probate Attorney

Administering an estate after a loved one passes can be a very stressful and difficult time for many people.

Probate is the court-supervised process used to distribute the estate of the deceased. The probate process consists of:

  • filing a petition with the court to appoint a personal representative
  • paying off debts
  • distributing assets
  • filing an inventory of the estate
  • closing the probate

Probate can be a lengthy and costly process. A Probate with no hiccups can take about six months. A Probate with problems or contentions can take even longer. Appropriate Estate Planning can prevent friends and family from having to go through the Probate process, however, if a Probate is necessary our office can guide you each step of the way and help make an unfortunate situation a little less difficult.

The Affidavit Procedure

Some estates can be administered by utilizing the Small Estate Affidavit procedure. For this process, the estate must be valued at less than $100,000.00, must not consist of real property, and forty days has passed since the date of death. This is a simple process that we can help you with.
