After a person dies, their assets must be transferred to their legal heirs. Regardless of whether or not there is a Will, the process of transferring assets is referred to as Probate. Probate is the legal process of administering the distribution of a deceased person’s estate. After an individual dies, the legal title (ownership) of their property and assets must be legally transferred to the beneficiaries listed in their Will. If the deceased individual died without a Will, the beneficiaries will be designated by state law. Many times the deceased’s bank accounts and other financial accounts will be frozen until a Court Order is provided instructing the bank as to who will have the authority over the financial assets. Titles to real estate, motor vehicles and any other assets that have a title of ownership must be handled in order for these assets to be transferred or sold. We can help you with distributing the deceased’s estate to the proper heirs by utilizing the best Probate process for your situation.
