Probate Lawyers Connecticut

Probate law refers to the process of distributing assets upon the death of an estate holder. In the case of a legal will, it is considered a testate matter for a probate court judge. It is generally a matter of ensuring that the will was legally executed and filed, prior to distributing assets. When no will has been written or found, the matter is considered intestate, and the final decisions regarding the distribution of assets are left in the hands of the probate courts.

In the United States, we now consider all matters relating to probate courts to be a body of probate law, including the final details of estate administration and resolving disputes among beneficiaries who may be contesting the terms of the will. Contact one of our probate attorneys if you require help.
