Respectful Guidance Through Probate
When someone passes away in Ohio, his or her estate may need to go through the probate process. If an up-to-date will was in effect prior to their death, their property is distributed according to the designations listed in their will. However, in cases where a decedent did not have a will, the probate court determines how to distribute the remaining assets.
In some cases, you may question a loved one’s will or how a personal representative manages the decedent’s financial affairs.
