Probate Mediator in Pasadena
Find a Solution Without Raising More Conflicts
Probate is the process of legally proving and enforcing an individual's will after he or she has passed. Alternatively, if an individual did not create a will, probate also refers to the process of determining who will inherit which assets in the absence of a will. Probate is moderated by the county court and can take months, sometimes years, to completely resolve. One of the first steps of probate is the court appointing someone the executor or administrator of the will. This person has the legal authority to distribute the estate to the beneficiaries.
It is common for family members to disagree or even fight over the various items of property in question. Family and relational pressures are usually at play, not to mention stress or grief following a loved one’s passing. Although the outcome of many decisions during probate is ultimately settled in court by a judge, the health and harmony of your family is still at stake. For help navigating the various complicated decisions that take place during probate, contact Mr. Mark Baer.
