Probate And Estate Administration

When a family member passes, sorrow and uncertainty follow. At Herring Chapman, PA, our compassionate lawyers understand this is a difficult time and can ease the confusion that comes with the death of a loved one.

Distribution of your loved one's estate is conducted through probate. Probate is the process where a loved one's personal and real property are distributed to beneficiaries and heirs.

All debts, claims, and taxes that the estate owes are paid by the executor or personal representative of the estate and the remaining property is distributed according to the person's will, if there is one.

If there is no will, their estate is distributed according to Mississippi's laws of intestate succession. Not all property is subject to the probate process.

Established in 1998, our firm has the experience with Mississippi probate laws and can help you with probate proceedings.
