If a loved one has recently died, it’s important to understand the basics of the probate process in Vermont. Probate administration is the most common process for wrapping up a deceased person's affairs. In Vermont, the process involves submission of the will to the probate court for validation, accounting for and protecting the decedent’s assets, paying legitimate claims against the decedent’s estate, and distributing the estate assets to the decedent’s heirs and beneficiaries. The probate process requires many steps and often addresses unexpected issues, while being subject to the probate court’s procedural requirements.
