The probate process involves FOUR BASIC STEPS
Probate is the court proceeding that proves the validity of a Will and through which an estate is administered. Through the probate process, estate assets (assets of the deceased) are collected and, after expenses and taxes are paid, distributed to heirs. Pacific Estate Planning P.C. efficiently moves an estate through the probate process. We also work with clients on strategies for avoiding probate.
At Pacific Estate Planning P.C., we understand that this can be a difficult and stressful time for all involved in the probate process. Our attorney will work diligently to make certain that your case is properly handled in order to expedite the process.
