Probate is the legal process of authenticating a will and distributing a person’s assets upon their death, and can be costly and time-consuming. When there is no will, Massachusetts state law will determine the distribution of assets.
Settling an estate through probate can be a complicated and emotionally draining process, especially in cases where there is conflicting family interest or the will is contested. Probate is not required in every circumstance, and can be avoided if an estate plan has been created.
