What Is Probate?

Probate is a legal process where the court reviews a decedent’s assets in order to validate a will and determine the inheritors. Probate is notoriously known as an expensive process due to the court costs, taxes, and filing fees involved. Because of tedious paperwork and court proceedings, it can be extremely time-consuming taking anywhere from a few months to a year or longer. 

Matters can become more complex if the decedent left no will behind that outlines beneficiaries. This means that Pennsylvania intestacy laws will have an effect on how the probate process plays out. 

What Are An Executor’s Responsibilities?

If you’ve been named as the executor of your relative’s estate, there are a myriad of duties you’ll be responsible for including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Filing the will in the appropriate probate court
  • Notifying beneficiaries, banks, creditors, and government agencies of the decedent’s passing
  • Paying off owed debts
  • Taking inventory of the assets
  • Maintaining property until it is sold or distributed
  • Distributing assets
  • And more!

Josh we wanted to take a moment to thank you from the 3 of us from the bottom of our hearts. You are a gift and you have such a gift in what you do and they way you actually do it.

*We highly recommend Joshua Daly for Elder Law, wills, etc. This is something that people don’t know what can happen when your parents pass away or what to do. Josh helps prevent as much as you legally can the home and assets being taken by elder care home and/or govt.
What a great experience on a subject people don’t like to talk about but is so important. Josh makes this process pleasant. We are recommending Josh to all our friend and family and friends. Everyone should get their ducks in a row. I am glad we met Josh & finally did this!
Thank you Josh
