We Will Guide You Through Every Step Of The Process
The loss of a loved one can be extremely emotional, especially for family members or others acting as executors or administrators of a decedent’s estate. While dealing with your grief over the death, you may also have to unravel complex financial issues and navigate challenging family dynamics.
There is a legal process involved in settling the affairs of a person who has passed away. This is called probate. The estate of the person who died, including taxes owed, creditors paid, transfers of real estate completed and the distribution of remaining assets to beneficiaries will be handled by the probate court. With or without a will, nearly every estate must go through probate to some extent. The process can be time-consuming and expensive, especially if the estate is large, if the decedent had no will or if beneficiaries dispute the validity of the will.
