Many people see probate as a negative process because it can be lengthy and a bit costly; however, there are quite a few benefits!
Interested parties can benefit from probate in many ways, including:
- The court will validate the will. In order for a will to be admitted, the court must verify that it is valid and in compliance with state law.
- The estate administrator will be supervised. All actions by the executor will be closely watched by the probate court to ensure that everything is done properly. This will also give greater protection to any heirs or beneficiaries.
- It is easier to resolve a dispute. The probate court allows for a forum to dispute various issues, such as will contests, guardianship, and accountings.
- Creditors have to file a claim in a limited amount of time. After being given notice, creditors only have a short window in which they can file a claim-a matter of months in most states. A trust, on the other hand, has a statute of limitations for up to a few years.
