Options for keeping assets out of probate

If a Tennessee resident dies without having any estate planning tools in place, some or all of their assets may pass into the probate courts of the state. During the probate process, the assets of the decedent are located, debts are paid and distribution is made based on certain laws and procedural requirements. Though probate is intended to allow for the orderly distribution of assets to heirs after a death, it can be time consuming, costly and can dwindle the wealth of an estate.

Information needed in a petition to start probate

It is never easy to lose a loved one in Tennessee and there is a grieving process that the family will go through no matter what the circumstances were. However, when people die there are also legal matters that need to be addressed to deal with the deceased's estate. As people are aware people cannot bring their possessions with them when they die. Therefore, the courts need to ensure that these possessions are given to the proper people.

What if there was no will?

The sudden loss of your loved one is heartbreaking. The last thing you and your family want to think about is taking care of the practical details of the estate. You are likely stressed if you have been given this responsibility.
