Probate and Estate Administration
Probate courts oversee the administration of property after death, the guardianships of minors, and conservatorships of incapacitated adults.
When someone dies, either leaving a will or without any planning at all (the “Hope Plan”), the court will supervise the processes of transferring legal title of property from the estate of the person who has died to his or her beneficiaries.
Transferring property when someone dies can be complicated and is always expensive, and takes several months to complete. Probate and Estate Administration can be totally avoided with the right Estate Plan.
