Probate can be an overwhelming process for individuals to handle, especially coupled with the emotions of losing a loved one. This is a process through which the validity of a deceased individual’s will, and the future of the estate, is determined. However, the absence of a will or estate documents is also dealt with through probate. Throughout the process of probating a will, the transfer of the title of an asset is completed (with the court’s supervision), as well as the transfer of property from the deceased to the beneficiaries as stated in the will, or dictated by state statutes.
Administering the estate of a deceased individual often falls on the individual named in the estate documents. However, our firm’s experience administering estates is an asset to both administrators and executors. We can walk you through the process to ensure that the estate is distributed according to the legally binding documents. Our firm can also advise estate administrators on the legal aspects of their roles.
