How Does Probate Work?

Probate is simply the process of verifying a will and court supervision of the administration of the estate. If there are not disputes over aspects of the will, probate can often be a relatively simple process. However, disputes often arise between heirs, sometimes over minor items. It is best to identify such disputes early in the process and resolve them before they get out of hand.

At Kuhn, Heap & Monson, we believe in working proactively to avoid the need for litigation. Our probate attorneys focus on the efficient distribution of assets to prevent unnecessary disputes. As trusted counselors at law, we can provide comprehensive legal counsel and representation in the probate of any estate, regardless of the size or complexity.
