Since its founding in the early 1800's, Columbia, MO has had over nine generations of people having families and giving way to the next generation. When there is a death in the family, there is legal work to be performed in order to settle the estate according to the plan the decedent left behind.
To enact that plan, the will and all related documents proceed to Probate Court. The probate process addresses many issues, including:
Locating the will. Wills may be left in the decedent's home, in a bank, or with an estate lawyer. Some people may even choose to keep their will on file with the Probate Division.
Determining the legal validity of the will, or "probating" the will.
Approving or appointing a person, bank or trust company as the executor or administrator of the estate to enact the instructions of the will
Identifying and resolving claims made on the estate.
Distributing estate property according to the will.
