Learn How Probate Works And What We Can Do

Most people will have their assets pass through probate when they pass away, as it is the designated process by which their assets can be distributed to their heirs under court supervision. The court will ensure that the terms of the decedent’s will are followed and that the appropriate actions are taken to honor their wishes. Probate also ensures that all debts of the estate are paid so that the estate assets can pass on without creditors claiming them. With the help of a probate attorney, you can avoid common pitfalls and ensure that your loved one’s estate is smoothly guided through probate court.

For most estates, probate is mandatory; however, in some situations, assets can pass outside of probate. In cases where all of your assets are jointly owned, such as a joint bank account, these will not be covered by probate. Additionally, assets with an established beneficiary, such as a life insurance policy, can also pass outside of probate.

If there is no will in place, then your loved one’s assets will pass according to the rules of intestate succession, which are a series of default rules established by the state for inheritance. Priority is always given to spouses and children, with additional family members being eligible if the decedent does not have an immediate family.
