Probate is the legal process by which the testator’s property is sorted out upon their death. This is often a difficult time for family and loved ones and the court process can be trying. Cohen LLP has the experience in dealing with these court proceedings, which are in part carried out to validate the will and supplementary documents. It is crucial that these documents are accurate upon their presentation to the court, as you will be swearing to their legitimacy.
In addition, banks typically require confirmed probate documents before allowing any assets to be withdrawn from the deceased’s accounts. The same typically applies for any real estate attributed to the deceased.
