Probate: Locating and Analyzing the Will

0 Comment(s) | Posted |

Once the Will is located, the Executor confers with family members and with other persons familiar with the decedent's affairs.  An attorney is usually retained at this stage to represent the estate.  The Will should be placed in a safe place until such time as the documentation necessary to probate the Will is complete and ready to deliver to the Clerk of Court.

If there is no Will, the attorney is consulted relative to the distribution of the decedent's probate property in that the same is  dictated by the North Carolina General Statutes.  The Statutes also dictate who may qualify for Administrator as well as the order of precedence for such persons.
