Probate process

Probate is the legal process that occurs after a person dies. Listed below are the three basic steps involved in Probate:

  • Inventory and appraisal of assets. The first step in the probate process is to create an inventory of the decedent’s estate property. This is performed by the estate’s executor or administrator. In addition, the executor is responsible for getting an appraisal of estate property.
  • Paying estate bills, debts and taxes. If you are the executor of your deceased loved one’s estate, you are not personally responsible for paying the bills, debts and taxes of the estate. In addition, if you believe there are invalid claims against the estate, an attorney can provide you with valuable assistance.
  • Transfer of estate property. Once all estate bills and debts are paid, the executor, in accordance with the wishes of the Will, distributes the remainder of the property.
