After a person dies, estate administration is used to distribute the assets to heirs, pay all debts and settle the decedent’s affairs. For Ohio residents who have created an estate plan and are under the impression that it is sufficient, it is still important to be attentive about common mistakes.
Many Ohio residents have heard about inheritances, and many times, they’re pictured as being a lump sum check of money. In reality, passing down assets is not always that easy.
Just because you wrote a will doesn’t mean that it’s valid in the state of Ohio. Your will has to meet certain qualifications before a judge will approve it after your death.
