Probate Guidance

Probate is a court-supervised legal process that may be necessary in the event someone passes away. The purpose of probate is to ensure the deceased individual’s debts and taxes are paid and that assets are transferred to the people who are entitled to them. Probate can be a lengthy and expensive process; however, it can be avoided with careful estate planning.

An important part of creating an estate plan is choosing an executor for your will, or a person to administer your estate on your behalf after you die. The executor is responsible for locating and notifying heirs, beneficiaries, and the appropriate creditors of your death. He/she must prove your will is valid, inventory and safeguard your assets, pay debts and taxes, and distribute the remaining property of the will.

Our firm can represent the executor or administrator in court. We can also help you file the proper paperwork prior to the required deadlines.
