The probate process can range in complexity depending upon the assets owned by the deceased person and the preparations that person made prior to death. While the overall concept appears simple, it can often become overwhelming to those who have never handled an estate administration. The probate court staff can be very helpful in guiding you through the steps, but is not allowed to provide legal advice. If you have questions or need guidance, the best place to start is with a qualified probate attorney.
