Probate Services

Probate, whether formal or informal, is the process of winding up the affairs of the person who has died (the decedent) and includes asking the court to appoint a personal representative (sometimes called an “executor”) of the decedent’s estate, and to determine if there is a valid will. Once the personal representative has been appointed they are able to gain access to the assets of the estate.

Legal Doc’s understands that losing a loved one can be difficult. Trying to understand the process of probate can be even more difficult. We can assist you in making it a quick, easy and painless process.
