Probate Lawyer
Florence, Boone County, KY | Covington, Kenton County, KY

What is probate in Kentucky?
The court "probates" a Last Will and Testament to determine its validity. If there is a Will, then the court appoints a Executor/Executrix (male/female) to carry out the instructions in the Will. If there is no Will, then the court appoints an Administrator/Administratrix (male/female) for the authority to transfer assets, address debts and all other issues.

How long does it take?
With small estates, the process can be over almost immediately. Otherwise it takes at least six months.

Do I need a lawyer?
A lawyer can answer your questions and prepare the court paperwork. A judge has to approve everything, so having an experienced attorney will help this process go smoother during the stressful times that follow a loved one's passing.

What documentation do I need?
Some of the following documents may not be available at the time of your free initial consultation or even before you go to court:

  • Certificate of Death
  • Any Wills or Trusts (even prior ones if available)
  • Decedent's personal information: full name, address, date of birth, date of death, social security number, Medicaid card
  • A list of real estate and estimated value
  • Deed to any real estate and title to any vehicles
  • The names, addresses and ages of the heirs at law and next of kin:
    • spouse
    • children
    • grandchildren (only if their parent is deceased)
    • parents (only if there are no surviving children)
    • brothers and sisters (only if there are no surviving children or parents)
  • Bills and proof that you paid any expenses for the decedent's final medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses.
