Part of the 
"How to Practice Law" 
Series 

This "how to" guide walks new attorneys through standard estate administration procedures for probating a will and obtaining letters testamentary. It also serves as a great tool for more experienced practitioners to brush up on this fundamental estate administration skill. The resource provides answers to the following basic questions: 

  • Where do I begin?
  • Are there any exceptions to the standard estate administration procedures?
  • How do I probate the decedent's will?
  • What does it mean when a will is self-proving?
  • How do I obtain letters testamentary?
  • What if the decedent's appointed personal representative is not willing to serve?
  • What information do I need to complete the necessary paperwork?
  • Are there any additional items that must be submitted or procedures that must be completed?

... and much more!

Get right down to the nitty-gritty with a step-by-step summary of exactly how to execute this fundamental task in the real world. The easy-to-follow format will prepare you for probating your first will (or refresh your memory to probate your fiftieth!) within minutes, not hours.
