When a loved one dies, their Estate Plan dictates the next steps. If the loved one had a will, the probate process would begin to settle the estate. This is when a probate lawyer can be helpful. They can help administer the estate according to the will and ensure that all legal requirements are met. Probate can be a complex process, so it is important to have an attorney who understands the law and can help to guide the family through it.
One of the most valuable functions of a probate lawyer is to protect the interests of the person who died. They must ensure that all of the deceased’s assets are accounted for and distributed according to the will. Probate lawyers must also ensure that debts or taxes are paid before any assets are distributed to the beneficiaries.
The probate process can be difficult for family members, but with the help of a good lawyer, it can be much smoother. The lawyer can help communicate with all parties involved and ensure that everything is handled fairly and according to the law. Our goal is to provide peace of mind for family members during a difficult time.
