What is Probate?

When a loved one passes away, their property must be managed and distributed. The process of transferring this property and making sure that all debts owed are paid in full is called estate administration, or probate.

If your loved one had a will, the court will examine it during probate to first check that it is valid, then they will seek to ensure that the will is carried out properly. To make sure that the directions laid out in the will are followed by all parties involved, a personal representative is appointed to oversee the process.

Probate can be filled with complexities and may be difficult to navigate on your own. That’s where we come in.
