Probate is the process by which the court oversees the distribution of your estate to your heirs. This process could include decisions upon claims from creditors, resolving disputes among, heirs, selling and or liquidating assets to distribute what you leave behind. This is an arduous process which no loved one will enjoy.
Beyond the emotional cost of probate is the financial burden family or friends are left with to petition the courts for the legal distribution of the deceased’s property in the event of a dispute. Even with the process going smoothly the cost maybe significant. Therefore, some of what one may leave behind will come from the estate itself which inevitably will decrease the amount intended for heirs.
