Probate services refer to the legal services provided to individuals or families involved in the administration of a deceased person's estate. These services typically involve the court-supervised process of distributing the deceased person's assets and properties to their beneficiaries or heirs according to their will or state laws if there is no will. Probate services may include drafting and filing legal documents, representing clients in court, resolving disputes between beneficiaries, managing estate assets, and advising clients on tax implications and strategies for asset protection. The goal of probate services is to ensure that the estate is distributed in an orderly and fair manner while minimizing costs and maximizing the value of the estate for the beneficiaries. Probate services are often provided by lawyers, but may also be provided by other professionals such as estate planners or financial advisors.
