Who cares about Probate? ¬†You Do. Finally, after about twenty years of thinking about it — Massachusetts adopted the Uniform Probate Code. That means our probate laws are more like those of other states and that the word “Probate” is less scary than it used to be. For example:

  • You can appoint an estate administrator in 7 days instead of 5 months;
  • There are more protections for beneficiaries of trusts; and,
  • There are more protections for people under guardianship.
