Will and Probate
A will is a document that provides instruction on the distribution of the deceased’s assets to their beneficiaries. This is one of the most important documents that one must create in their lifetime. It must be prepared with utmost care and in the presence of a witness. Failure to do so may result in the document being rendered invalid. This will leave it open to dispute or challenge. Worse still, an invalid will may have no effect at law, which means the law may be left to determine how your assets are distributed.
Probate is the legal process that helps establish the validity of a will. It is the first step in the execution of the will, granting the executor the permission to distribute your assets as prescribed by you in the document. Making sure the procedure of probate is carried out correctly is critical to the validity and execution of the will. It can help avoid messy conflicts and challenges between the recipients.
However, such disputes do occur, and tend to rear their ugly heads at a time when the family is at its most vulnerable. The death of a loved one is a time of emotional turmoil for the family, and when matters regarding the wills and probate of the deceased become imminent, it is important to have the law on your side to help make sure the proceedings are executed smoothly.
