What is Probate?

When a loved one passes away, his or her estate often goes through a court-managed process called probate or estate administration, where the assets of the deceased are managed and distributed. Think of estate administration as a play-by-play process that is completed according to the probate court’s guidelines. 

Contrary to popular belief, probate does not apply only in cases where the decedent left a will. An estate must be administered whether there is a will or not, and our attorneys are here to guide you through the process so that you don’t miss out on any benefits or forget anything important.

Your Probate FAQs

Upon the death of an individual, their will is submitted to probate court. The court appoints an executor, who will be responsible for managing the settlement of the estate. Typically, the executor is designated in a will by the decedent.

Rarely, if ever, will there be a formal “reading of the will” ceremony, but the executor will still need to notify all beneficiaries of the will’s submission to probate court and follow through on administering the estate. That’s where Elder Law Lawyers can help. Contact us today to request your consultation.

The legalities of Kentucky probate law can make estate administration difficult for regular people to navigate. Some of the ways a probate attorney can help include:

  • Reduce stress caused by these complex legal matters
  • Access the estate sooner
  • Avoid rejection in the courts
  • Prevent missing anything important
  • Resolve debts smoothly
  • Reduce conflicts within the family, among the inheritors

Technically speaking, probate means the legal proving and administration of a will, or of a deceased person’s estate when there is not a will. It involves probate court, the estate executor, and all beneficiaries.

If there is no will to designate beneficiaries, the courts will determine how to distribute your assets based on Kentucky succession laws. This method of distribution involves complicated formulas, and it may unpleasantly surprise you and your loved ones to find out who the state thinks your assets should go to.
