What You Need To Know About DC Probate Law

Probate administration involves the court­-supervised process that allows for the distribution of your assets upon death. While some of your assets may automatically be transferred to another party outside of the probate process, the remainder will need to be retitled and distributed to your heirs. The remaining assets may either be distributed according to the terms of the decedent’s will or to the intestate laws of the State the decedent was domiciled in when they passed. Furthermore, the process ensures that all of your legitimate debts, bills, taxes, and outstanding notes are paid.

When a will is filed for probate administration, the probate court appoints a personal representative, also known as an executor, to oversee the case. The personal representative is often designed in the decedent’s will. The main role of the personal representative is to carry out the terms of the will. The personal representative also handles other administrative tasks. For example, they sign legal documents, write checks from the estate, and oversee the remaining business affairs. This process can take years, and often becomes a nightmare for many families. Our website aims to give clients a general idea of the complexities of Probate in the D.C. Metro area.
