Probate Law


Probate is the term for the procedure whereby a decedent’s affairs are handled. When somebody passes away, all the property owned by them that does not pass directly to others through a right of survivorship, through a trust established before death, or through life insurance payable to a named beneficiary is subject to a legal proceeding known as probate. In Rhode Island, each city or town has its own probate court with its own probate judges. When a will is probated, proof is provided that the will was validly executed by the decedent. However, in some cases, issues may arise, and these may result in will contests or proceedings to challenge a guardianship.

Rhode Island probate lawyer Joseph Ballirano will handle the entire probate process from start to finish and fight creditors of the estate so you get the money, not them!
