Probate is a process that every estate goes through following the death of the owner of the estate, regardless of whether or not the person had a will in place. The probate attorney is responsible for dispersing the assets and possessions of the deceased, and if a will is present, he or she must do so according to the will. If there is no will in place, the probate attorney may distribute the assets and possessions of the deceased according to State regulations.
The attorney who assisted the deceased in the drafting of his or her will may serve as the probate attorney, or if there was no will in place, the State will appoint a probate attorney. The process of probate can become very emotional, especially in cases where the surviving family members disagree with the deceased’s will, or where they disagree with how the State chooses to allocate the deceased’s assets.
