PROBATE COURT - ADMINISTRATION AND LITIGATION

When you or a loved one is forced to deal with the Probate Court, the outcome is not guaranteed.  The outcome can be affected by whether you have a skilled Probate Attorney to guide you through the process.  The Probate Attorneys with our firm specialize in assisting families navigate the probate process to reduce stress and increase the likelihood of obtaining the desired result.

The word probate comes from Latin probatum which means “something proved.”  Probate typically refers to the process in which an individual’s assets are transferred on death during which his or her will is “proved” and admitted to probate court.

In Michigan, each county has a Probate Court which has jurisdiction over the following matters:

  • Wills and Deceased Estates

  • Trusts

  • Guardianships (Minors and Adults)

  • Conservatorships (Minors and Adults)

  • Mentally Ill and Developmentally Disabled Individuals

Michigan law regarding these matters can be found in the Estates and Protected Individuals Code located in Michigan Compiled Laws 700.1101, et. seq.
