What Is Probate?

After a person dies, their assets must go through a court-supervised process known as probate. During this process, the court distributes the decedent’s assets to their heirs. The entire probate process can take at least nine months. The court also charges fees worth roughly 3% of the value of the estate to the executor and 3% to the attorney representing the executor.

The court will do the following things when your estate goes to probate:

  • Determine if there is a valid will
  • Complete an inventory of all your property and assets
  • Appraise your property and assets
  • Distribute your property in accordance with the will or the orders of the probate judge

What Strategies Can I Use to Protect My Assets in Probate?

Do you worry that your family won’t be able to obtain the property you leave behind if it goes through probate? Then consult with our skilled legal team so we can discuss how the following estate planning tools can help protect your wealth:

  • Living trusts
  • Last will and testament
  • Transfer-on-death deeds for real estate
