After the loss of a loved one, navigating probate might be the last thing you want to do. Even if the deceased individual had an estate plan in place, probate can be confusing and drawn out. At Overman & Overman LLC, we are here to help you during this stressful time. Our probate lawyers can answer your questions and advise you of your options.
What is probate?
Probate is a formal process that involves going to court to administer the estate of a deceased individual, known as the decedent. Depending on the estate plan created by the decedent, probate may not be necessary in every case. When it is necessary, probate typically involves:
- Recognizing the will of the decedent
- Appointing the executor or administrator of the estate
- Distributing assets to beneficiaries
How can a lawyer help with probate?
When a will is submitted to the probate court, the designated executor of the estate will have many tasks to complete. Family members may also want to challenge the validity of a will by claiming undue influence, lack of mental capacity or other defects in the will. Our legal team can help with every step of the probate process for executors, beneficiaries or heirs to a will.
