William R. Noelker Law

Where Is Probate Handled?

Probate usually occurs in the appropriate court in the State and County where the deceased permanently resided at the time of his or her death. Such courts go by different names in various states. In many states the court is simply called the Probate Court.

The probate court usually handles the distribution of all the personal property the deceased owned, as well as all of the real estate that the deceased owned that is located in that same state.

If you or a loved one is in need of legal assistance, call The Law Office of William R. Noelker at 1-859-236-0374 or submit an online questionnaire. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your case, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds. In many cases, a lawsuit must be filed before an applicable expiration date, known as a statute of limitations. Please call right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
