The term “probate” refers to a court-supervised proceeding that is involved when an individual passes away and handles the transition of their assets that the decedent owned and payment of any debts and taxes. Probate also refers to the court-supervised process where an individual needs to have court-supervision over the affairs of a minor or an incapacitated individual through a guardianship or conservatorship proceeding. Our experienced trusts and estates attorneys can give you advice, direction and assistance in handling the necessary court filings and hearings.
