Understanding the Probate Process

March 31, 2017 Probate and Estate/Trust Administration

In February, we discussed one of the first steps in preparing for probate: Understanding Your Loved One’s Will. In that article, we discussed the various roles that a person’s will plays in probate, from (potentially) designating the method of probate to accounting for funeral expenses and distributing some or all of the decedent’s assets after death.

Along with understanding your loved one’s will, when preparing for probate, it is also important to familiarize yourself with the process involved. Probate is just that – a process – and the better you understand it, the better able you will be to protect your personal interests while ensuring that your loved one’s final wishes are carried through.
