What is involved in the probate process?
Probate is the legal process through which a decedent's will is validated and their estate is distributed. When a person leaves a will, they designate an estate administrator to oversee the distribution of their estate. Have you been designated as the administrator of an estate? Our firm can help you understand your duties and guide you through the process.
As an administrator, you are responsible for:
- Validating the will
- Collecting & inventorying the decedent's assets
- Paying all taxes & debts
- Notifying loved ones & creditors of said loved one's passing
- Distributing their estate according to state law or their will
Depending on the size and complexity of the will, it may take months to gather and inventory their assets, as well as deal with any creditors or lawsuits. Filing for a tax I.D. and paying the correct taxes can also be challenging. By hiring the Law Office of Conrad Willkomm, P.A., our team can ensure all steps are completed correctly and in a timely manner. This way, you can avoid potential errors and legal ramifications that may accompany said errors.
