After a person passes away, the survivors of their estate must go through a court-supervised legal process called “probate.” This process will determine which family member or beneficiary is entitled to have legal authority over the administration of the assets in the estate. The person granted this authority is responsible for transferring property and funds, as well as paying debts and taxes owed by the estate. The probate process in Tennessee can be lengthy, sometimes taking six months to a year to complete. It can be even longer if the estate has unusually complicated assets or if there is a contentious battle over the validity of a will.
