Look, even with the best planned estates, settling estates can get complicated, especially the probate process. The death of a loved one often means heightened emotions. Besides that though, some common factors can significantly complicate the probate process. Several issues we’ve seen make the probate process murkier include the following:

Why Is Probate So Difficult?

  • Sometimes, people pass away with significant debts that beneficiaries and estate representatives weren’t even fully aware of.
  • We’ve seen probate get complicated when a person dies without any will at all.
  • Sometimes, our clients report that conflicting wills existed.
  • Family often have differing stories about a decedent’s final wishes.
  • Existing family disputes just become worse once a loved one passes.
  • Sometimes a beneficiaries express dissatisfaction with an established trust.

If you’re headed to probate, make sure your real estate agent and other probate professionals are equipped with the ability to guide you through this extremely tumultuous and complicated time.  It doesn’t have to be as hard as it often is.
