I should know this – I’ve lived through it, but my memory is failing me right now.

What I need to know is if anyone here knows anything about inheritance, regardless the size. Mostly what happens during and after the reading of the will and how (ideally) disbursement of properties and moneys afterward is handled.

I do remember how disbursement is handled poorly, sadly. What I don’t remember is how it is supposed to work – through lawyers, paperwork, etc.

If anyone here can give me a hand or can point me in a direction, I’d be most appreciative! Thanks!
