Starting Probate

Return to FAQ Videos


Often times clients have a lot of questions about the probate process and how long and time consuming it might be. It can be as easy or difficult as a family wants to make it. Essentially, the executor named in the will petitions the court to have the will probated and that means the heirs at law are going to be notified that the will exists and witnesses have the ability to be questioned about their actual witnessing of the will and that it was properly done, the person wasn’t under undue influence and they also had capacity to execute a will. You have to be in a right state of mind and know who your beneficiaries are and your assets are, so that process can be very simple. The heirs can actually sign off that they agree that this will actually is valid and it goes very smoothly from there.
