Probate Administration


If you die with a valid Will your estate will go through the probate process. If you die without a Will, owning property, your estate will also have to go through Probate as well. Probate is the process of admitting a Will as a valid legal document, and then disposing of the property of the estate according to the guidelines set forth in the Will. In a larger sense, probate is the process of gathering up your assets, paying your debts, expenses and taxes, and distributing property to designated beneficiaries. In most cases the Probate Process can take up to a year. Sometimes it can feel like a full time job. The attorneys and staff at Guertin and Guertin, LLC are here to help you through the Probate process.
