What happens during probate?
The individual responsible for executing the duties of an estate is known as an executor. The executor’s job can be difficult and time-consuming, especially for individuals who are not familiar with financial or legal processes. We recommend that you work with a professional to help you properly execute your loved one’s estate and to minimize any disputes.
Probate administration involves the following steps:
- Notifying all heirs, beneficiaries, and creditors
- Taking inventory of all property and assets
- Paying off any expenses, including funeral, debt, and taxes
- Transferring of property according to the will
A probate court does not determine the division of IRAs or other retirement accounts, stocks, and other financial assets. These assets have already been designated a beneficiary, usually upon the account’s opening. If you need assistance with the probate process, our firm is ready to provide you with nuanced and attentive representation.
