Advice and Services to Assist with Probate Court Matters

The term, “Probate,” encompasses a broad area of law. Probate matters may include name changes, adoption, or disability situations that require probate court guardianship or conservatorship actions.

Most often term probate refers to an estate administration following the death of a loved one, one of the most difficult situations any of us ever face. Probate administration is a legal process to appoint a legal representative for the deceased, provide for payment of debts to creditors, and to provide for the orderly distribution of the remaining assets among beneficiaries. Handling the process for the distribution of a deceased person’s assets–especially if there is no will–can add much stress to an already emotional time.

These are some of the matters handled in the probate courts:

  • Descendant's Estates
  • Conservatorship Estates
  • Guardianship Estates
  • Will and Trust Disputes
  • Adoptions​
  • Name Change
  • Estate Settlement Agreements
  • Exchange Student Guardianship
