Probate

Probate is the legal process of settling the estate of a person who has died. Sometimes probate requires the court appointment of an executor or administrator. However, depending on the facts of your situation, it may be possible to resolve an estate with little or no court involvement.

Although the probate process can be complex and daunting, Paula Flowerday can help you determine the best and least-costly process based on your needs. Some options for probate are:

  • Independent Administration (with or without a will)
  • Dependent Administration
  • Muniment of Title
  • Determination of Heirship
  • Affidavit of Heirship
  • Small Estate Affidavit
  • Agreements to Not Probate a Will and Family Settlement Agreement
