When someone we care about passes away, we might have to deal with something called probate.
Probate can take a long time, be stressful, and cost a lot of money.
Some family members can handle it by themselves, but it’s usually too complicated and takes too much time for someone who is already sad about losing a loved one.
It can be really overwhelming to deal with both the legal stuff and the sadness at the same time.
It’s often a good idea to get a probate attorney to help with someone’s things after they pass away.
The attorney can find the person in charge, guide those who inherit stuff, and do tasks like listing everything, figuring out how much it’s worth, paying any debts, giving out the belongings, and keeping track of everything.
