Dealing with the loss of a loved one is a difficult situation in and of itself – that situation can be made worse by the headaches associated with the probate process. Even the word “probate” can bring about questions and confusion. However, with the help of Longstreet Law, you will learn that it is not as confusing as it appears. The probate process in Indiana serves a vital purpose. The laws of probate determine how a person’s property, called an estate, gets distributed after death. Conducting a probate in Indiana commonly takes six months to a year, depending on the situation. It can take longer if there is a court fight over the will or unusual assets or debts that complicate matters. By putting your problems into the hands of Longstreet Law, you can rest assured that your dealings with the probate process will be as simple and as straightforward as possible.
Probate is a court proceeding where the validity of a will is determined and the execution of the will’s provisions are administered. It is the process of submitting the Last Will and Testament to the court having jurisdiction over probate in the county where the decedent died. Longstreet Law also handles power of attorney documents, living wills (advanced directives), adoptions, guardianships, and estate administration.
