What is probate?

Probate is a process of delivering an asset owned
only by a deceased person to the person/entity that
is entitled to it.

Do I have to go through probate if there is a will?

Having a will does not affect whether or not
probate is necessary.  

How long does probate take?

That depends on the circumstances.  As a general
rule, an estate with over $75,000.00 worth of
assets is given about a year and a half to be
completed under court guidelines.  This firm's
personal goal is to complete the probate process in
less than 7 months.  A small estate with no
creditors can be accomplished must faster.

What documents/information is needed?  

The original will if there is a will.
A certified copy of the death certificate without the
cause of death on it.
A list of assets owned only by the decedent.
Names and addresses of next of kin and all persons
named in the will.
Names and addresses of all creditors with amount
