As Baby Boomers age, more and more questions about this legal procedure are being asked. Is probate necessary in my particular situation? How long does the probate process take? Do I need legal assistance to sort out the probate process?
If you have heard that it is horribly expensive and as complicated as learning Mandarin Chinese you have probably been needlessly scared. On many occasions the answer is simple…you and your family do not need probate.
