Sacramento Probate Attorney

ASSISTING CLIENTS THROUGH THE PROBATE PROCESS THROUGHOUT SACRAMENTO COUNTY AND SURROUNDING AREAS

Probate is essentially the legal process of property title transfer after a person dies. When a person dies with a will in place, or without a will at all, the probate process is usually required to transfer the title of assets to the proper beneficiaries of the deceased person's estate.

Are you named as the Executor, Personal Representative, or Administrator of the estate of someone who has recently passed away? Hill Law Offices, PC, can help you find your way through the process of probating the estate.

Did someone close to you pass away without a will? We can help you to administer this type of estate, too. Call us for information on how to proceed in this situation.

WHAT DOES THE PROBATE PROCESS INCLUDE?

  • All property of the deceased is found and collected into the estate
  • Outstanding rights to any property, income or dividends are collected
  • All legally valid debts that the deceased owed are paid
  • All disputes are settled in the probate court
  • Property and assets of the estate are transferred to the beneficiaries and/or heirs, through the court, in the process of probate
