What is Probate?

The legal process by which your property is collected, managed and distributed after a person’s death is known as “probate”. Some types of property pass automatically under Ohio law, while other types are required to go through the probate process. The probate process in Ohio is usually longer and more time consuming than most people assume. It helps to plan ahead to avoid some of these problems.

Consulting with an experienced estate planning attorney is essential in making sure that your final wishes regarding your property, your loved ones, and your healthcare options are carried out with success and at the least cost.
