Answering Your Questions about the Utah Probate Process
How does it work?
If you’re wondering what the Utah Probate Process means for you, you’ve come to the right spot! To be clear, ‘probate’ simply refers to a court process in which the decedent (the deceased) will have his or her assets collected and distributed. The decedent’s creditors will be apprised of the collection and they will be paid what they are owed. Once the creditors are paid, the assets that remain will be divided between the heirs to the deceased.
