Greg Port will guide you through the 4 steps of probate:

2. Following appointment by the court, the executor must give notice to all known creditors of the estate and take an inventory of the estate property.
3. All estate and funeral expenses, debts and taxes must be paid from the estate.
4. Legal title in property is transferred according to the will or under the laws of intestacy (if the deceased did not have a will).
Although this process may seem complicated, Greg will walk you through it step by step so you’ll have the best outcome possible.
