What is Probate?
When a person passes away, almost any property held in his or her name must go through probate before it can be transferred to the next generation. This is true even if there is a will. Probate is the process of determining who has rights to the assets of the deceased person.
Think of it this way: if a person were to die with $1,000,000 in assets, but $500,000 in debts, somebody has to make sure the debts get paid, the assets get appropriately distributed, and the wishes of the deceased are respected as much as possible.
Probate law dictates how this is done, and includes complex rules and regulations.
How Does a Probate Lawyer Help?
An experienced probate lawyer knows how to navigate the pitfalls and rules of the law. They can help the heirs keep the maximum amount of assets possible while meeting any necessary obligations. Probate lawyers can create last will and testaments, assist with trusts, and create power of attorney and medical power of attorney documents. They can also manage the filing of papers in probate court.
Probate lawyers help their clients avoid liability lawsuits by making sure that the requirements of the law are fulfilled and rights are protected.
