A: The next step is your brother has to gather all assets and report them to the court. Ultimately probate is a very public process but there are lots of items that can be confusing. If you want to give me a call I would be happy to give you a no charge full consult on whether or not you will need an attorney. Unfortunately, it is impossible to tell from your fact pattern alone. In many cases you will not need an attorney. In some others, it would be crucial to obtain one.
