Probate: What to Expect
When a loved one dies, those left behind are often left to not only cope with the loss of a loved one, but also to administer the estate of their loved one. If the estate’s assets are not held by a trust, the assets may need to be administered through the court process called “probate”.
The probate process involves the court appointment of a “personal representative” (also known as an executor or administrator) to handle the decedent’s estate administration. Once the court has appointed a personal representative, the personal representative must ensure collection and protection of estate assets, handle payments to creditors (or resolve disputed claims), and account to the estate beneficiaries and to the court for all transactions.
Occasionally, this process is straightforward, but more often there are complicated issues that must be resolved, such as determining which creditors are entitled to priority of payment when limited funds are available, or determining which beneficiaries are entitled to specific distributions through a Will.
