Probate

Oakland County Probate Attorneys

Probate is the legal process of transferring property from a decedent’s estate to his or her heirs. The process typically includes the identification and notification of heirs, assessment of the estate, paying of debts and the distribution of assets. This process can become complicated, however, if there is no Will or the Will is contested by survivors.

At Ryan B. Stearn P.C., our Oakland County probate lawyers have extensive experience guiding clients through this process. We are well-equipped to represent fiduciaries in the administration of estates and trusts. Our attorneys can also represent beneficiaries, heirs, creditors or other interested parties throughout the probate process.
