Civil Litigation, Trust, Wills and Probate
Civil Litigation- The term civil litigation refers to a legal dispute between two or more parties that seek money damages or specific performance rather than criminal sanctions.
Trust concerns the creation and protection of asset funds, which are usually held by one party for another's benefit.
Will is a legal document by which a person, the testator, expresses his or her wishes as to how his or her property is to be distributed at death, and names one or more persons, the executor, to manage the estate until its final distribution.
Probate is the legal 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.
The granting of probate is the first step in the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person's property under a will. A probate court decides the legal validity of a testator's (person's) will and grants its approval, also known as granting probate, to the executor. The probated will then becomes a legal instrument that may be enforced by the executor in the law courts if necessary. A probate also officially appoints the executor (or personal representative), generally named in the will, as having legal power to dispose of the testator's assets in the manner specified in the testator's will. However, through the probate process, a will may be contested.
