The probate process can be a time of stress for a family. Often we are still mourning the loss of our loved one, when we are faced with the sometimes daunting task of going through probate. What is probate? It is the process of gathering information about the estate's assets, paying debts, distributing assets and changing title to property after a loved one passes away.
Let us put our experience to work for you and have the peace of mind of knowing that we will guide you every step of the way. We will examine your loved one's will and the assets in the estate to determine the best probate process to use. Smaller estates may be able to use less costly procedures such as muniment of title or a small estate affidavit.
Ideally, before anyone's passing, we put estate planning in place so that your wishes are clearly and thoughtfully expressed and so that the probate process will be quick and painless for the surviving family. To accomplish this, we use wills, trusts, special needs trusts, and powers of attorney.
