  1. What is Probate? The word probate, in Old English, means "to prove". Probate can play a big role in estate planning because a family will be subjected to probate when a family member passes away, a family member ends up being inefficient or a minor child inherits property. The legal procedure of probation includes managing the estate of a dead person by building the grounds of a will and carrying it out. For instance, if Tom, the proud owner of a condo and a Ford Civic, unexpectedly passes away, his condo and Ford Civic are regarded to be the property of his "estate". In order for this estate property to be lawfully distributed to Tom's loved ones, the case must pass through the court-supervised estate administration procedure referred to as probate. The totality of the procedure will be supervised by the Probate Court, which was created to protect family members and creditors from getting an unfair part of the property left behind. The Probate Court will also make sure that Tom's bills are settled, that his property is legally passed on to its new owner, and that Tom's children's financial affairs will be protected. Lots of Americans are puzzled about probate and estate taxes, and they may wrongly assume that their estate is too small to bother about. Yet still, probate is a procedure that one must go through no matter of the size of their taxable estate. Let's say Tom was residing in the state of California. The federal tax exemption is presently $5,120,000 per person and the Black Mountain Ranch estate tax exemption is presently $2,000,000 per person. That suggests that if Tom's estate was worth less than both of these amounts, he will not have to pay any federal or state estate taxes. After Tom's passing, his estate will go through the probate process, during which the Probate Court must verify Tom's Will and allow the personal representative with authority to deal with the matters of the estate. If Tom did not produce a Will, the probate process will still be the same and the court will act on the state's guidance rather of Tom's guidance. It is necessary for Tom's family to get legal attorney and guidance from a seasoned probate attorney immediately following Tom's passing. There are several guidelines and duties outlined for the executor of the estate, and an experienced lawyer can support ensure that you are on path with the tasks needed of you.
