Estate Administration And Probate Archives

Being the executor of an estate

One of the most important choices Ohio residents will have to make about an estate plan is who will serve as executor. The executor will be responsible for handling all of the estate owner's affairs after death. If an estate owner dies without a will specifying an executor, an administrator will be designated by the probate court.

What to expect during probate

If an estate holder creates a will, it will be authenticated and its instructions followed during probate. Probate is also used to determine how much an estate is worth and pay any taxes or other debts that an estate owes. For Ohio residents, state law will specifically determine how the probate process is conducted.
