Probate refers to administering the property of a decedent by a Personal Representative under the jurisdiction of one of Michigan’s county probate courts. Generally speaking, when a person dies leaving property in his or her own name or having rights to receive property, the assets must be administered by the probate court. The Personal Representative has numerous duties and responsibilities to the court as well as to the beneficiaries of the estate. A qualified attorney is necessary to administer the estate properly and in accordance with various state laws.
The probate court is also responsible for handling will contests and disputes over trust administration. When probate litigation is necessary, we can help protect your interests
