Probate After a Death

Failure to effectively plan can often result in the necessity of the probate court, following a death. However, this is not always the case. Depending on the assets involved and the value of those assets, there may be other options. Michigan law allows for smaller estates and certain assets to pass outside of the court’s oversight, sometimes alleviating the need for a probate case to be opened at all. Click here to learn more


Guardianship is a legal process for adults who have a significant medical impairment and are unable to make or communicate effective decisions about their everyday care, health, and safety. In such a case, the Michigan probate court can appoint a Guardian to make some or all personal decisions on behalf of the individual. A guardianship protects the adult’s rights and independence and can be limited to areas where the adult’s ability is impaired. Click here to learn more


A conservator is a person appointed by the probate court to oversee and manage the money and property of an adult who is financially incapable. A serious medical diagnosis, such as Alzheimer's, traumatic brain injury, bi-polar disorder, or Down syndrome, may require the appointment of a conservator. A conservator can also be appointed for a minor child (under the age of 18) or someone who suffers from addiction. Click here to learn more
