Probate is the court-supervised administration of a decedent’s estate. Not all estates have to be probated, and even for those that do, some of the assets are exempt from the process. For instance, assets avoid probate if they are in joint tenancy; if they are in a Living Trust; or if they have a specified beneficiary.
The bottom line is this: Probate is a lengthy, complicated and often frustrating process, made all the more difficult by the grief that accompanies losing a loved one. In circumstances where probate is necessary, Debora and Michael can guide your family through this difficult process with compassion and sensitivity.
