Probate & Care Directives
Probate in Minnesota is the legal process by which a deceased person’s estate (material and financial assets) is inventoried, accounted for, and distributed. The contents of a deceased person’s estate can be distributed through Probate in two ways. First, assets may be distributed through instructions found in a “testamentary document” such as a Will or a combination of a Will and Trust. Second, if no legal Will is available, the deceased person’s estate will be distributed as directed by Minnesota State Statutes.
A health care directive is a legal document specifying and explaining what your health care wishes would be, and potentially whom you would like to make some decisions on your behalf, in the event you become unable to communicate those wishes yourself. Arctos Law can help you ensure that your probate and health care will be handled according to your wishes under Minnesota law.
