Probate is a process which validates and pronounces Last Will and Testament of Individual as valid and effective for purposes of estate administration and asset distribution.
If you have had a loved one pass away recently, you may have found that their Will has to pass through probate court before debts of the decedent ?may be paid and the remaining assets of the decedent may be distributed to the beneficiaries. Depending on the size and complexity of the estate itself, this process can take anywhere from few weeks to several years. If you are a beneficiary of the estate, or involved in it in any other way, it is important to understand what to expect and to have the help you need.
Probate process includes several steps. This will provide you with an outline of what to expect while this event is taking place.
Petition – When an original Will of the decedent is discovered by the surviving spouse or children, the probate process will begin by filing a probate petition with the probate court. When this occurs, all heirs and beneficiaries must also be notified that a court hearing will take place. If at a later point later Will is discovered by someone else or if there are allegations of the fraudulent activity, the actual Will or a Will produced under undue influence, the objection to probate will be filed with the court and this will lead to a hearing.
