What do you do with the will? What if there is no will? Can I transfer real estate? How do I distribute assets? We answer these and any other questions that you may have concerning probate administration.
The Probate Process in Indiana
The purpose of probate is to make sure that a deceased person’s wishes are respected and that their property is distributed properly. The probate process begins by filing a petition with the court to open the estate of the deceased loved one, and asking the court to appoint a person to be responsible for estate administration and property distribution.
If the loved one left a will, the probate process will usually be more streamlined and less contentious. Typically, a will specifies how property will be divided, who will be the executor of the estate, and whether the estate can be unsupervised.
Our attorneys can assist you with all aspects of the estate process, including filing the petition to probate a will, preparing the required legal documents anddeeds, petitioning the Court for final accounting, and distributing assets.
