What is Probate?

Probate is the court-supervised transfer of property from a deceased person to their heirs and beneficiaries. When a person dies, his or her assets and property become the responsibility of whoever is named in that person’s will. If there isn’t one then state law determines who inherits those rights with probate lawyers helping you through the process.

Probate can be a complicated and time-consuming process. However, our experienced probate attorney will help you understand the process and ensure the case moves through the probate system smoothly without delay or unnecessary expense.

The Probate Process

The person who handles probate for a deceased person is known as the personal representative (sometimes called an executor). If the decedent died with signed a will, the will usually nominates one or more people to act as personal representative. If the decedent died without a will (intestate), then Indiana law provides priority for certain persons to serve that role.
