Who Needs a Probate?
Heirs are usually children of the person who passed away but can be, in some situations, grandchildren, brothers or sisters, parents or any nearest living relative.
Probate is a court process which must be used when there is a will (testate) or when there is no will (intestate.) A probate attorney assists in filing the necessary paperwork and notices for the heirs.
Assets for probate include houses, automobiles, bank accounts, stocks, bonds and personal belongings.
Costs include court filing fees, notices and appraisals. The can be advanced by the attorney.
When the executor is approved by the court, the assets must be compiled, creditors paid, notices published, real estate transferred and interim and final accountings prepared and notice to the heirs. When all legal requirements are met, the estate is distributed.
