Probate Law Services
Probate is the legal process necessary to settle one's financial affairs after death. It consists of proving in a Missouri court of law that the will is a valid public document and is the true last testament of the deceased person.
Probate is the first step in the process of administering the deceased's estate and includes resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person's property according to his/her will. Petitions for guardianship of and/or conservatorship for adults are also addressed by the Probate Court.
