When you need representation for probate in Enfield Connecticut, call the probate lawyers you can trust at the law office of The Law Office of Charles D. Hines. Probate is the judicial process whereby a will is “proved” in a court and accepted as a valid public document that is the true last testament of the deceased. After someone dies, their financial affairs need to be wrapped up and any remaining assets need to be distributed to his or her designated heirs. Once the debts have been settled and paid, their property and goods are then distributed to designated heirs. A surrogate court decides the validity of a testator’s will. Through probate administration, Attorney Charles D. Hines and his team will advise and assist executors and administrators in each phase of the probate administration process.
