Probate. It’ a bad word, right? It should be avoided at all costs right? Courts…… Executors……Lawyers….. Costs…… Fees……. It’s enough to cause heart palpitations.
The fact is, the vast majority of families will face the need for a probate administration at some point. Although the costs and benefits of avoiding probate can be debated, probate does provide for an orderly and organized means of making sure that a will is enforced and that the estate beneficiaries get what they were intended to. In cases where there was no will, an intestate probate is necessary and will dispose of the estate among the rules of heirship established in Minnesota.

From the initial court appearance to the final accounting, we make the probate process as pleasant as possible.
