Get Experienced Guidance For Probate And Estate Administration Processes
A will is administered through a probate court. This process accounts for a deceased person's assets and their distribution. The probate process typically last a year or more. Beneficiaries receive designated property and cash assets according to the provisions of the will, once all requirements of the probate court have been met.
An intestate death (with no will), on the other hand, requires estate administration according to state laws. State statutes spell out which survivors are heirs and what dollar amounts and what proportions of estate proceeds will go to the respective heirs. Estate administration without a will usually costs more and takes longer than the probate process.
