The Probate Process



 



Welcome to LawShelf’s video-course on the probate process. This course focuses on the steps necessary to administer the estate of a deceased person, from the initial steps to be taken immediately after death through the closing of the estate.

This is an intermediate level course and taking LawShelf’s video-course on Wills before this one is recommended unless you have some education or experience in this area.

The course opens with the documents to be gathered immediately after death, including the death certificate and will. We’ll also focus on when probate is necessary, as many types of assets, such as those jointly held, do not require probate. We’ll also discuss the various types of administration proceedings that are necessary, depending on the nature of the estate.
