What Is Probate?

Probate is a legal process through which a deceased person’s estate and inheritors are reviewed and verified by the court. This includes an examination of the will, the distribution of property, the payment of debts and taxes, and other crucial steps. This process can seem daunting, complex, and costly at first, but with the assistance of our experienced Wilkes-Barre probate attorney, it can be made easy.

The Probate process entails multiple steps through which the validity of all aspects of the estate plan is determined and the wishes of the deceased are carried out according to this estate plan. Probate can often be a long, drawn-out process, but with legal assistance to ensure timely filing and actions, the process can be made as efficient as possible. 

In some cases, probate can be avoided entirely. This depends on the makeup of the deceased’s estate plan, such as if they have a living trust rather than a will. Our probate lawyer can analyze your estate plan and determine if probate is necessary in your case. If you are wishing to set up your estate plan so that your family avoids probate in the future, we can assist you.
