What is the Probate Process in Ohio?

Probate refers to the court process that a person’s estate must go through after their passing. Probate is meant to guarantee that heirs receive their inheritance, taxes are paid, and creditors are given what is owed from the estate. A probate attorney can serve as executor to an estate and manage the probate process or be appointed as an administrator with the court. The court will issue the Letters of Authority, which requires the following matters be settled before probate is complete:

  • Validate the will (if one exists)
  • Inventory the estate assets
  • Appraise the assets
  • Pay creditors and taxes
  • Distribute remaining property according to the will or Ohio intestacy laws

Depending on how many issues may arise during the process, probate can take anywhere from a couple of months to years.

Potential Issues That Can Arise in Probate

There are a number of issues that can arise during the probate process that should only be handled by an experienced Ohio probate attorney. If multiple creditors make claims to the estate, complex creditor payouts may be necessary. State and federal taxes can also require an expert depending on the complexity of the deceased’s estate. Finally, will contests from heirs can tie up probate cases for years if someone alleges that the will was invalid due to undue influence or a lack of capacity. If there is even a chance that an issue may arise in your loved one’s probate case, it is important that you hire an experienced probate attorney to handle the matter.
