When a loved one passes away, there are many things that those who are left behind have to do. Not only are there funeral or memorial plans to make, you also have to deal with the person’s estate. This will involve going through the probate process for many people. Probate is an unfamiliar thing for many people. Some aren’t sure exactly what they need to do or how they need to do it. We’re here to help anyone who’s going through this situation to handle the probate matters, so they can focus on healing and learning to live without their loved one. There are several things that happen during the probate process. These duties are handled by the administrator of the estate, so you have to know who that person is. The duties include finding assets and getting them distributed in accordance with the plan. The will must be filed with the probate court, so the court can approve it. Any bills that are due from the estate are taken care of during this process. This includes filing tax returns for the estate and giving the court a final accounting of the estate. People who are handling the probate process must remember that not all assets go through the probate process. Some assets like retirement accounts and life insurance policies won’t have to go through this because they are transferred to the person who is named as the beneficiary of them. We are here to help you throughout the probate process, so you won’t have to worry about errors that could be costly and drag the process on longer than necessary.
