What Is Probate?
Probate is the legal process of administering an estate after a loved one has passed away. It is necessary to probate a will in Wisconsin because it is a legal document that must be recognized by the court. If there is no will, a court must appoint an administrator to administer the estate. This process is called "intestate."
During the probate process, an estate administrator is responsible for gathering the deceased's assets, paying off their debts, and distributing their assets to their beneficiaries. The administrator must follow the instructions in the will, if there is one, or in the intestate laws if there is no will. The estate administrator must file the appropriate legal paperwork with the court and ensure the estate is closed once all assets have been distributed.
How Long Does Probate Take?
The estate administration process can take several months to complete. There is no specific time frame for the length of time it will take to probate an estate, as it depends on the size of the estate, the assets involved, and the complexity of the assets. It is important to have an estate attorney to help you through this process and ensure your loved one's wishes are carried out.
