We can guide you efficiently through the probate administration process.
For an asset to change hands, the transfer can only occur when you have the legal authority. In simple terms, you have to first own something in order to give it away or sell it. When a person dies, they are no longer able to handle the process of transferring their own property, so it is necessary to appoint someone to handle it for them. The probate administration process involves choosing the person who will have the legal authority to handle the decedent’s estate.
