What is Probate?
Even when a will or trust designates you as the administrator, the estate proceedings may wind up in Probate Court for legal actions necessary for you to act. You need legal representation from an experienced Probate Attorney to help you through this confusing and lengthy process and to ensure that you have done everything required. Wills and trusts and proper estate planning generally keep estate assets and property out of Probate Court management. But, if the estate has $150,000 or more in assets to be passed by a will, or there is no will, Probate is probably required.
