The period after a family member or close friend dies is always difficult. When your loved one passes away, his or her estate may be required to go through a court-managed process called probate administration, where the assets of the deceased are distributed.
If the Will names you as the personal representative (also known as the “executor”), you have legal obligations to manage. There are many factors which cause the probate process to be difficult and confusing – especially if the named personal representative lives out of the area where the Will must be probated. There are many factors that contribute to the length of time needed to complete the probate of an estate, including local procedures, rules, the schedule of the probate court, and the size and complexity of the estate.

Additional challenges of the probate process include times of inter-family disputes. In these cases, the role of an experienced attorney becomes more crucial.
