Questions About North Carolina Probate

What is “living probate” and is an executor involved?

Living probate’ is a fairly new option in North Carolina and does not require an executor. Amendments to the North Carolina Uniform Trust Code in 2015 allow for living probate, which is a court process that a testator can pursue to personally validate the terms of their will while they are alive. This can help to prevent will contests and conflicts during probate after their death.
