The Probate Process In Michigan

The legal process where the validity of a will is established is known as probate. Probate also allows someone who has passed on to settle his or her debts, and legally pass ownership in property to people designated in his or her will. This process can be complex and overwhelming for anyone not familiar with it.

The probate process involves many steps that can vary based upon the estate and the estate plan the deceased had in place. Generally, however, an executor of the estate will have to:

  • Obtain several certified copies of the death certificate
  • File proper documents with the probate court
  • Respond to challenges of the will's validity
  • Collect and inventory all assets that are subject to the probate proceedings (including obtaining appraisals)
  • Paying the debts and taxes the decedent had at his or her death, as well as all estate expenses
  • Transfer estate property to heirs and beneficiaries
  • Address other issues as necessary

At Bieber & Czechowski, our team of talented attorneys and staff will advise you throughout the entire probate process, as well as remove the enormous stress it can might cause you and your family.
