Probate is the court process of sorting out the details of a decedent’s estate. Its purpose is to make sure all of the assets listed in a will or trust are properly distributed to the designated recipients. It is also responsible for settling taxes and debts owed by the decedent. The probate process can be tricky, especially if the decedent did not have a detailed estate plan. (This is referred to as an intestate succession.)
If you have been named as an executor by a decedent or by the state, you should not attempt to struggle through the probate process alone. Contact the Law Offices of T. Michael Carrington, PC for help probating an estate in Centennial, CO.
