Understanding the role of a probate curator

Even if you are not familiar with the estate administration process, you likely understand that there are several things that need to be done in order to prepare your loved one's estate for probate in Hernando County. As all of the necessary steps are being taken, what happens with the estate's assets? Many have come to us here at The Day Law Office concerned that not having someone monitoring estate property in the absence of a confirmed personal representative could expose it to creditor's claims and other losses. If you share the same concerns, do not worry; in such cases, the court will often appoint a probate curator. 

What if you die without a will?

Much of the reason why you and others in Hernando County are encouraged to see to your estate matters early on in life is to retain control over how your estate property is dispersed when you are gone. The probate court is there to help in the distribution of your estate, yet after working so hard throughout your life to accumalate assets, would you not want to have a say in who gets them? If you fail to create a will, you will not. In such a situation, the dispersal of your estate becomes subject to the state's rules regarding intestate succession.
