PROBATE LAW

The probate court is created to supervise the orderly transfer of the property owned by the deceased to the descendants. If a Will exists, it must be filed in the probate court. If no Will exists a procedure is in place to transfer the property. If a trust was created to replace a Will, the document must be reviewed for compliance. In all cases the property of the estate must be studied: life insurance, social security benefits, bank accounts that are owned individually by the deceased or jointly with another person, debt, retirement accounts, investments, furniture, furnishings, electronics, appliances, tools, equipment, jewelry, and heirlooms. The Michigan Probate Code is not complicated and the procedure is not lengthy or expensive as commonly believed. In most cases the attorney can assist the family in the probate process with minimal expense and effort.
