You can rely on our knowledge and experience as we work with you and your family.

Distributing Assets And Closing The Estate

In general terms, probate is the court process for distributing assets from a will or an intestate estate. If the decedent left a valid will, it will be proven and the assets distributed accordingly. If the person died intestate (without a will), the estate will be administered according to Minnesota law.

We will take care of all the probate requirements, including notifying creditors and beneficiaries, gathering assets, filing petitions, preparing an accounting for the court, paying the estate's final bills and filing the estate's tax returns. In many cases, attorneys' fees are paid out of the estate so executors do not have to worry about these costs. However, each case is unique, and we recommend that you discuss your case with us before assuming that legal costs will be paid from the estate.

It is important to realize that probate is not for passing nonprobate assets to beneficiaries. Probate is, in general, the process for distributing assets that are left to beneficiaries in a will. Estate planning, specifically the creation of trusts, can help people avoid the probate process.
