A Thorough Administration Of An Estate
Probate is basically the transferring of property under the terms of a will, trust and other estate planning documents. While it seems like it’s a relatively simple process, a lot can go wrong which can tie up the estate for a long period of time. We want to help you avoid costly and time-consuming errors that could have a negative impact. Some of the items we assist with include:
- Obtaining the will and other estate planning documents
- Gathering the assets of the estate
- Paying the debts of the estate
- Distributing assets according to the estate plan
- Representing the estate in court proceedings
In addition to helping with probating an estate, we are also available to help you explore any options that you may have if you have concerns about your interests under a will or trust. These are highly contested claims, often pitting family members against one another. If you feel that you may need to challenge an estate, reach out to us as soon as possible so we can make sure that your interests are protected.
