We proudly serve clients throughout Warminster, no matter how complex their estates might be.

What Is Probate?

After you die, all of the property and assets you have acquired must pass through a legal process called probate. During this process, a probate judge will determine if a valid will exists. If there is a valid will, the judge will have clear directions for how the assets and property of the deceased should be distributed among heirs and other beneficiaries of the estate. If your estate plan doesn’t have the right legal documents to avoid this lengthy process, then your loved ones will have a major hassle to deal with when you are no longer around.
