Probate refers to a court process which oversees the transfer of a decedent’s assets to the decedent’s heirs and/or beneficiaries. Typically one will want to avoid the probate process in that it is an expensive and time consuming process. Often times when assets are changing hands from one generation to the next, disputes arise as to who is entitled to those assets. If a will is being offered for probate interested parties have a right to contest that will. Will contests are extremely complicated matters and require the skill of a trained attorney in the area of probate litigation.

Once probate is opened and a will has been admitted, it is imperative for the personal representative (the person who has been appointed to handle the estate) to take certain steps in marshaling assets, filing an inventory and appraisal, providing notice to creditors and paying legitimate debts and finally filing an accounting and petition to close the estate.
