Starting Probate
The probate process starts by filing a petition with the court listing the deceased's name and their heirs/beneficiaries. The court appoints a personal representative, usually a family member, to administer the estate. They gather assets, pay creditors, and file necessary taxes.

The Personal Representative's Role
Once assets are collected and debts are paid, the personal representative distributes the remaining assets to beneficiaries as directed in the will. Depending on the will's terms, assets may be distributed in a lump sum or installments. Probate usually takes several months.

The Estate Lawyer's Role
During probate, the Boise estate lawyer advises the personal representative and represents the estate in court. They help ensure assets are distributed per the will, taxes and debts are paid on time.
