Probate Will & Estate Administration
We Probate Wills and Intestate Estates (No Wills)
In order for a Will to be valid it must be admitted by the probate courts wherby you must file an application with the probate court and have a hearing before the probate judge to do this.
From there your estate can be administered.
The Probate Court appoints and executor or administrator
Thereafter the Probate Court issues “letters testamentary” and “letters of administration” after the hearing if the Will is admitted and if the executor qualifies.
When there is a valid Will, in most cases, we can have you appointed as the executor and the Will admitted with 4 to 6 weeks.
When there is no valid Will, we do a determination of heirship and administration and that process can take 6 to 8 weeks assuming all the heirs can agree to the probate administrator and agreeing to them being independent administrator.
After the executor or administrator is appointed, whichever the case may be, the court requires an inventory of the estate, notice to creditors, and notice to heirs of the estate or Will.
As a court appointed fiduciary after your appointed by the court you thereafter collects the estate assets; deals with creditors and final expenses; and distributes to heirs the estate assets.
