Probate refers to proof and relates to proof of wills. In Rhode Island, probate procedures are regulated by Title 33 of General Laws and statutes by the Rhode Island Supreme Court. Each city including Portsmouth has its own probate courts and probate hearings are held in city/town hall. Our Rhode Island probate lawyer has years of experience representing clients to prove a will and to execute it efficiently.
Wills including contest of wills, proof of wills, interpretation of wills, and custody of wills all relate to probate law. Our probate lawyer term can represent families efficiently. Where no will was drafted, an administration is opened where an administrator is appointed and the property is divided in court. For wills with a personal representative, the estate must be collected, managed, and distributed according to the will documents. At the Law Offices of Howe & Garside, we understand the specifics associated with executing these things and can help families to organize the tasks so that a will is carried out as it was intended to be in Portsmouth.
