Probate is the legal process that often occurs when someone has died. The probate process is a means of transferring a deceased person’s assets to their beneficiaries or heirs. If a person doesn’t own assets, probate is not needed. Sometimes all of a deceased person’s assets have beneficiary designation, in which case probate is still not needed. If a person has an asset that is owned outright without a beneficiary designation, usually some type of probate is necessary. There are two types of probate in Minnesota: Informal Probate and Formal Probate. The probate process in Minnesota can be complicated. We are here to meet with you to determine if you even need an attorney, and if so, how to move the process forward as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
