What Does The Probate Process Involve?
The word "probate" can invoke fear and dread in many people. Probate can be a lengthy, contentious and expensive process. No one wants to deal with drama, the disposition of an estate that takes years to resolve, or an astronomical bill from a probate attorney. However, in most cases, the probate process doesn't take very long. There are only a few circumstances in which the probate process becomes complicated, such as when a will is contested, the estate has continuous income or the estate is very large and owes income taxes.
