Open4Probate is the #1 community on the net covering social issues about probate.

The Open4... family of web sites supports Operation Savannah - a foundation providing information on PTSD and support services for veterans and their families. Please consider helping them if we have helped you.

Our purpose is to change consumers attitude for the better by providing them quality educational information. And to equip them to evaluate the sensitive subject of probate in an objective and informed manner.

Our authors are all recognized experts in their field. All content is fact checked for accuracy and ethics by our editorial team. We only publish reader contributions that describe a personal experience with probate. The Internet has plenty of places for consumers an families to opine on probate.

We do not charge anyone for inclusion in our product directories. We do not sell any of their products or services. We publish our directories as a safe way for our readers to learn about probate in the United States.

Do be on your guard against probate scams and "hyped" product claims. The loss to those deceived and the abuse of the monies wrongly obtained is a scourge to us all. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

It takes considerable effort to publish this quality of articles for our readers. It is a full time job to properly secure our pages from hackers. We battle against sites that manipulate Google search results, and promote fake product reviews. Managing Internet advertising makes taming the wild west look like a walk in the park.

Probate is no place for the quick fix. We need to move beyond this and accept that it does require effort. If we work together we will regain the power of accurate knowledge. And when we apply our knowledge, we can ensure that our loved ones estate is properly distributed to heirs and designated beneficiaries.
