Here’s a Snapshot of the Probate Process

The first step to administrating the Estate of your loved one is to initiate a proceeding with the Probate Court asking the judge appoint a Personal Representative to be in charge of the Estate. A Personal Representative is needed whether or not there is a Will. If your loved one left a Will, that document will instruct the court who should be the Personal Representative and describe how the Estate should be distributed. If there is not a Will, we can guide you through the Intestate Procedure.

Navigating Probate Without a Will

If there isn’t a Last Will & Testament at the time of someone’s death, the family needs to go through an Intestate Proceeding. Through the Intestate Process, your loved one’s assets and property will be distributed according to the state’s intestate succession laws. We will walk through the Intestate Process together until the Estate is closed.
