What Is Probate Court?

Experienced Probate Law Firm Now Serving The Hudson, OH Area

Essentially, probate is a court-supervised process that ensures two things specifically:

  1. Dutifully apply the assets of the deceased person’s estate to satisfy any outstanding taxes and debts owed and
  2. Ensures that beneficiaries of the deceased receive their rightful distributions

Probate court handles explicitly cases involving a deceased person’s estate. If a person dies without a will or other legal documentation regarding their assets and debts, their estate will most likely pass through probate.

Not every person who dies with an estate must go through probate court. If the deceased partook in regular estate planning reviews before their death, chances are their will can be honored relatively smoothly. However, every case is different, so having a knowledgeable probate attorney available to answer questions specific to you is essential.

Sometimes, however, if their last will and testament isn’t as clear cut as it should be, this can lead to in-fighting amongst family members. If that loved one also had outstanding debts, creditors may be entitled to payouts and assets from the estate. This scenario can create a chaotic environment where heirs fight over assets, and creditors file claims against the estate to satisfy debts.

None of this has to be an all out war, and with a probate litigation focused attorney these matters can be handled with the utmost care. Serving Hudson, OH, the Law Offices of Amy R. Turos make it a streamlined process that ensures the best possible outcome for your family.
