Probate: Even if you leave a will, everything an individual owns is going to pass through the probate process. Although you are not legally required to have an attorney, it is wise to have one. Your attorney can walk you through the probate process and prepare the documents needed. This is especially important if real estate or children are involved. A probate case usually develops because there is a legal dispute regarding the will of the deceased. Family members may fight over various assets, accounts, guardianship of children or pets, or property.
