Probate is the administration of the estate of a decedent under the decedent’s will. A personal representative must be appointed by the court to gather and protect the assets, notify and pay creditors and distribute the estate in accordance with the terms of the will. Care must be taken to preserve tax planning which has been put in place, to file all required tax returns and to change title to assets correctly. It may also be necessary to probate the estate of a decedent who died without a will. The beneficiaries are then determined by the laws of intestacy. Dell Salter can help in all these areas.
