Many people misunderstand what a “probate” is and how the process works. A probate is simply a court proceeding that is used to pay debts and transfer assets following someone’s death. If properly handled, it does not have to be an arduous process.
A probate can be avoided, in most cases, with proper planning. However, if you or your family find yourself in a situation where you believe a probate may be necessary, you should seek legal advice. An attorney’s fees and costs are generally paid by the estate. In addition, the attorney’s fees will most likely be decided based upon statutory guidelines, which means the fees and costs will vary little from attorney to attorney. Thus, you have an opportunity to work with someone who makes you feel comfortable and at ease during this difficult time in your life without additional cost to you or the estate.
