What Is Probate?

Probate is the legal process that settles a person's estate after his or her death. This process takes place through the courts in your county and can be both lengthy and costly. An estate goes to probate if there is no plan in place at the time of a person's death.

How Do I Avoid Probate?

The lawyers at Libera Knapp Law Offices can help you avoid unnecessary costs. There are options that can save your family the time and expense of the probate process.

Here are a few other situations in which your estate will not go to probate after death:

  • Your property is jointly held.
