Handling the Probate Process in Kentucky
When an individual dies, their estate may pass into what is known as probate, a legal process whereby the court will determine things like the validity of a decedent’s will and the distribution of property to heirs mentioned in the will. Though you do have the right to represent yourself in probate court, many seek help from a qualified attorney, especially after discovering how complex the probate process and its laws can be.
