What is Probate?
Probate is the process where the court oversees the administration of a deceased person’s estate. This process is intended to ensure that all outstanding bills and expenses of the decedent are paid. This includes satisfying tax debts and claims made by creditors. The remaining assets are then distributed to the beneficiaries named in the decedent’s will. If the decedent did not make a will, the decedent is “intestate,” and the estate will be distributed to his or her heirs as defined under Nebraska law. You may not need a probate if your loved one had limited assets at their time of death, our attorney can help you find the most cost-effective means to deal with post-death administration.
Our attorney works closely with the estate fiduciaries to assess the value of the estate, settle claims, and efficiently lead the personal representative through the probate process. Our attorney also will ensure that titles to assets are properly transferred to heirs. While we hope to settle all matters amicably, in the event a dispute arises during estate administration, our attorney is fully prepared to mediate or litigate in court if necessary, to protect the estates’ interests. Probate administration can be costly and time-consuming without the proper legal assistance; our experienced legal staff will ensure that every estate will be administered with minimal expense and delay.
