Losing a loved one is a difficult time for you and your family that can be made even more overwhelming by the necessity of settling his or her estate. If you are the executor of a decedent's will that requires probate, this means you will need to follow lengthy court processes that require significant documentation and possible fees. At Herrig & Vogt, LLP, we understand that the probate process can be complicated and want to help ensure that you can get through it easily and swiftly.
Our Roseville probate attorneys have more than 100 years of combined experience, over which we have gained comprehensive knowledge of California probate and estate law.

Additionally, some of our lawyers have been rated AV Preeminent® by Martindale-Hubbell®, which is a testament to our dedication to excellent legal counsel.
In order to get started with the probate process, you must first file a request with the probate court that includes a death certificate and the original will. You must then notify all known creditors, beneficiaries, and heirs and file proof that you did so. The next step is to prove the validity of the will through statements from witnesses, known as a self-proving affidavit. Once all documents are filed, you may begin the administration of the estate.
As the executor of a decedent's will, this process can be entirely overwhelming, as it may involve conflicts and disputes among beneficiaries and creditors. Facing the death of a loved one is difficult enough without having to deal with his or her financial and legal matters as well.
