Probate refers to the process of administering and processing a person's estate through the legal system after they pass away. Probate law ensures that your estate is transferred to the correct people in an orderly manner. Almost all estates must pass through probate prior to their distribution, and certain steps must be completed in order to properly close a probate case.
Everyone who owns something has an estate. An estate may consist of a person's car, house, other real estate properties, and personal items. When you create an estate plan, you dictate how and to whom you want your items to be distributed to after you pass away. Without an estate plan, your assets and properties may be divided according to state law.
Within fiduciary services a fiduciary must act solely in a person's interests. When a person is hired as a fiduciary, they may not benefit from their client unless they have the client's consent. A fiduciary may manage and protect a person's assets, act as an attorney in fact, pay a person's bills, and perform representative payee and trustee services.
