Understand the Probate Process
Probate court proceedings can cause additional and unnecessary stress, as well as heavy financial burdens upon the family members left behind. The process can take months or even years to complete and is a very public matter which reveals some of your private financial affairs. Court costs and other legal fees can be expensive and may substantially decrease the value of the estate, reducing the amount inherited by to the heirs of the estate. This process may also lead to complex legal and litigation disputes regarding the conditions and terms of the estate to each heir, as well as individuals who believe that they have been unfairly denied their share of the estate.
