| ||Probate|| |
| When someone dies, their estate usually has to go through a probate court. This is the law’s way to make sure that a person’s possessions end up where they should end up, after any outstanding debts of the deceased are paid out of the assets of the estate. The first thing a probate court will do is appoint a Personal Representative for the estate, who will then work with a probate attorney to move the estate through the probate court.|
If you are going to be the Personal Representative of an estate, you will want to work with an attorney who knows what the probate court needs, who can communicate those needs to you and answer your related questions in a way you understand and appreciate, and who can help you get through the probate process with appropriate concern and respect for your recent loss.
