What is Probate?

Estates with real estate that is worth more than $55,425, and personal property worth more than $166,250, must go through probate, even if the decedent has a will. During the probate process, the court decides whether to admit the will and oversee the transfer of property among heirs. Most people want to avoid probate because they worry their hard-earned assets will be awarded to the wrong person. If your goal is to ensure your property passes to the right heirs and beneficiaries, then you need to discuss your planning goals with an experienced attorney to review all of your options under the law.
