Probate is the court-supervised process in which a will is "proven" and accepted in the act of passing a decedent’s assets on to their heirs, or, in the case that the deceased left no legal will, the act of determining and settling the deceased person's estate. Granting probate is the first step taken in managing the estate of your passed loved one, which may make it feel overwhelming and confusing. The Heritage Law team works with executors and personal representatives to establish probate, collect and value assets, notify creditors, liquidate and manage assets, and pay liabilities so that all assets can be best distributed to the heirs. Our team will guide you through every step of the process, and offer assistance in navigating legal procedure under these difficult circumstances. If you so choose, our team is also equipped to help you through executor representation, beneficiary representation, or even avoid probate altogether.
