Probate: What Is It? How Can It Be Simplified?
Probate is a court proceeding occurring after a person passes away. An appointed representative of an estate is given authority to gather the assets of the decedent, pay the bills and distribute what remains to beneficiaries or heirs. A court must approve actions taken by that representative. Court proceedings typically take from six months to two years to complete.
Probate can be a very difficult process to complete on your own. San Bernardino probate attorney Duane P. Booth and our firm can handle all the probate paperwork for you, as well as negotiate settlements between disagreeing family members. We also have years of experience of extracting the true meanings and intentions from poorly worded wills and trusts.
