When a person passes away, their assets and belongings typically pass through probate. Courts can add stress, confusion and complication in an already emotional time. While Rosā Law Offices, PC advocates planning today, we understand that dealing with probate can be taxing if a loved one has never established an estate plan. That's why we are here to help you through the probate process.
The first step to initializing probate is filing a petition. After the petition is filed, notices are sent to those who may take part. The will must then be proven and the assets subject to probate must be collected. Any outstanding debts are then paid from the estate as well as estate tax payments. Finally, the estate is closed and the remaining assets can be distributed to the heirs.
The entire court process can be sped up by starting the probate process immediately after a loved one's death. In California, probate can last between 7 and 12 months and maybe longer if the estate is contested. The best ways to accelerate probate are proper estate planning and beginning the probate process early.
