When a loved one passes away, you may be faced with a legal process called probate. Probate can be complex and time consuming, especially for the individual who is named executor or administrator of the estate. At The Omni Firm, you can get professional assistance from an experienced probate lawyer. We help executors, administrators, and beneficiaries carry out the legal tasks involved with settling their loved one’s estate.

How Does Probate Work?

Once probate begins:
  • All property and assets of the estate must be accounted for,
  • All taxes, expenses, and debts must be paid,
  • Beneficiaries must be identified,
  • and a Probate plan must be submitted to the court.
  • Once the court approves the probate plan, the executor is tasked with distributing the estate per the wishes of the testator.
What is an Executor?​
An executor is a person who administers the will according to the wishes of the testator. What powers they have can be determined during the probate process, which often include paying the testator’s outstanding debts.
