Probate is a legal procedure required by North Carolina Statutes to distribute the assets of a person who has died with a Last Will and Testament. If the person did not have a Last Will and Testament, then the procedure is called an Administration. It is filed in the county where the person resided at the time of his or her death. There are court fees associated with the procedure, required filings and notices to creditors to name a short list of statutory requirements. If you want to avoid all this, having a Living Revocable Trust is an alternate option to having a Last Will and Testament.
