Little Rock Will & Trust Lawyer
Probate is the legal process that determines whether the testamentary will of a deceased person is valid. While it is up to each person to draft a legal will to distribute assets according to their wishes, it is up to a probate judge to determine whether the terms of the will are legally valid. It is one of the important reasons why the lawyer you hire must have probate and estate administration experience.
