Probate

The Law Offices of Susan B. Geffen can help you with probate in Los Angeles and South Bay Area. Probate is the first step in the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under a will. The probate court’s in Los Angeles and South Bay area (surrogate court) determines the legal validity of a testator’s will and grants its approval by granting probate to the executor. The probated will becomes a legal document that may be enforced by the executor in the law-courts if necessary. A probate also officially appoints the executor (or personal representative), generally named in the will, as having legal power to dispose of the testator’s assets in the manner specified in the testator’s will. A will may be contested during the probate process in probate court. Having an experienced probate attorney in Los Angeles and South Bay will benefit you in many ways.
