When you probate an estate, you prove by a legal process that a will has been validly made and executed. This may sound complicated, but it isn't.

Even when there is no will or the executor appointed in the will is not acting, it is possible to administer an estate without a lawyer. This kit is designed for people with small or moderate estates to handle after the death of a family member or friend.

When someone has died, it must be proven that a will has been validly made and executed. This book demonstrates, in easy-to-understand terms, how anyone faced with the difficult situation of acting as executor can probate an estate and how anyone faced with acting as administrator can administer an estate -- without consulting a lawyer. It is possible for a layperson to probate an uncomplicated estate without paying a laywer and save thousands of dollars in legal fees in the process! 

Here are some of the topics that are explained in the kit:

  • What you should do after a death
  • The powers and duties of executors and administrators
  • What forms are necessary and how to complete them properly
  • How to assess the value of the deceased's assets
  • How to transfer the estate to the rightful beneficiaries
  • --And more.

By following the step-by-step instructions in this kit, you can successfully probate or administer a straightforward estate yourself; even if you are not planning to do it yourself, the included book will serve as a useful guide in discussions with a lawyer.
