Probate Wills & Estate
Probate is the Court procedure for formal approval of a will by the Court as the valid last will of the deceased and formal confirmation by the Court of the appointment of the person who will act as the executor of the estate.
It is important to note that a will does not preclude the need for probate. Whether or not your loved one’s estate needs to go through the probate process depends on what assets were owned by the deceased, and how they were owned.
It might also be prudent to put an estate through the probate process if estate litigation is foreseeable.
At BSA Law Firm we provide the right legal advice to our clients to confirm if the Estate of the deceased needs to go through the probate and assist the clients every step of the way through the Probate process.
