Probate is the legal process of distributing a deceased individual’s assets to his or her beneficiaries. Probate is either guided by one’s Will (testate) or without a Will (intestate). Though many might think the process of distributing one’s assets is a relatively straightforward process, it can become very complicated and it is best to hire an experienced probate lawyer. Individuals tend to experience difficulties when the decedent leaves behind intangible assets, real estate, significant debt and other aspects of their estate that is not easily transferable. Additionally, people may oversee the tax consequences and responsibilities of distributing one’s estate.
