Probate refers to the court process for distributing an individual's assets following his or her death. However, it also encompasses other types of proceedings. For example, probate courts serve a protective role in determining whether individuals are incapacitated and unable to make their own decisions so as to require appointment of a guardian or conservator. Additionally, disputes over wills, trusts, fiduciary duties, estate administration and related issues can lead to probate litigation.
Probate proceedings involve different procedural rules that can be complicated. Depending on the nature of the case, the parties involved and the required documentation, they can be complex and difficult to navigate.
