After you die, the person you named as Executor in your Will files papers in the local probate court. If you die intestate, the judge will appoint an Administrator. Your Executor oversees the administration of your estate during the probate process, which can take from a few months to two years; in some cases, even longer.
We help executors or administrators through all steps of the process, including providing notice to specific individuals and filing the necessary paperwork with the probate court in a timely fashion.
