Understanding The Probate And Wills Process
After the loss of a loved one, you may be engaged in the court-supervised process of transferring property known as probate. Probate ensures that the deceased person’s assets are properly distributed in accordance with his or her final wishes. In most cases, probating an estate includes collecting all probate property, paying debts, settling disputes and distributing property to heirs.
Whether you are the executor of the estate or have been appointed by the court as an administrator, the lawyers of Friedman Law Office understand that probate can be daunting.
There are numerous steps involved with probate law. A few matters our lawyers can assist with include:
- Submitting the will with the court to determine whether it is valid
- Representing your interests should the court rule that the existing will is invalid
- Discovering property and other assets to be distributed
- Assessing creditor claims and other repayment issues
- Aggressively advocating on your behalf during a dispute between family members and other heirs
No matter if you are dealing with a small estate or one that is complex, we can help you efficiently and effectively navigate the entire process.
We can also help you with several other family legal issues.
