Planning for your loved ones in the event of your death is never fun. In fact, it is very easy to push it off for later — but, the fact is, leaving written documentation of your wishes for property and asset distribution is extremely important to make things easier in the event of your untimely death. Probate law is the legal process that takes place after someone dies. It generally includes the following steps:
● Verifying or proving that the deceased individual’s will is valid;
● Identifying the deceased person’s property;
● Appraising the deceased person’s property;
● Paying all debts, taxes and other bills of the estate;
● Distributing the property that is left to those directed by the will.
