Probate is the process required to settle a person's estate. Some of the key components involved in the probate process are the verification of the will and settling the debts of the estate. In many cases, the people named in the will to serve as executors or personal representatives have never been through the process before and can find the responsibilities to be quite overwhelming.
In many cases, the assistance of an experienced Lake of the Ozarks estate planning lawyer can help you navigate this sometimes complex process and work to ensure that all responsibilities are properly fulfilled. At the law firm of Deputy & Mizell, L.L.C., we represent clients in all facets of the probate process.
