What is Probate?
Probate is the legal process for the transfer of assets from the deceased person’s name to his or her estate so that they can be sold, or distributed to the heirs. Assets include items such as real property (homes or any real estate owned by the deceased), cars, stocks, bonds, boats etc. Probate also includes settling taxes and any outstanding debt the deceased may have had.
Probate takes place in the county of the deceased person’s primary residence, and the process can range between 9-18 months depending on the county.
Losing someone ‘near and dear’ to your heart is never easy; and going through probate while grieving only makes it that much worse.
