The probate process typically involves validating the person’s will, identifying and valuing assets, paying off any outstanding debts or taxes, and distributing the remaining assets to the beneficiaries or heirs according to the terms of the will.
An attorney can help in navigating the probate process in several ways:

- Facilitating communication: An attorney can help facilitate communication between the executor of the estate and the beneficiaries or heirs, ensuring that everyone is on the same page and that any issues are addressed in a timely manner.
- Representing the executor: If you are the executor of an estate, an attorney can represent you throughout the probate process and help you fulfill your legal obligations.
- Resolving disputes: Disputes can arise during the probate process, particularly when it comes to dividing assets among beneficiaries or heirs. An attorney can help mediate disputes and work to resolve them in a fair and equitable manner.
