Losing a loved one is likely the most heart breaking experience most of us will ever know. Survivors are expected to make final arrangements for their family member, wrap up their business and legal affairs, and console each other, all while grieving through their loss. Many find these burdens to be overwhelming.
The Indiana probate process technically begins at death as the decedent’s worldly possessions become property of the decedent’s estate automatically by operation of Indiana Probate Administation law. In order to transfer those assets to the decedent’s beneficiaries, it is generally necessary to petition the local Indiana probate court for an order admitting the decedent’s estate to probate. From there, the probate process begins. The probate administration process can be a maze of confusion, even for a seasoned attorney, unless they have the knowledge and experience to navigate the complex procedures required of them by law.
