Probate & Estate Administration
The term “probate” refers to the process by which the financial affairs of the deceased are wound up, with the bills being paid and the assets distributed to the heirs under the supervision of a court of law. Many people prefer to avoid probate, but it is often necessary for the orderly distribution of complex estate assets, or when somebody is likely to dispute an estate.
