The probate process is a complex one that can be difficult to work through if you aren't sure what is going on. This occurs when you are already in shock because of your loved one's death. We understand that you might have some questions about everything and we can help you to get the answers to those.
Before your loved one passed away, he or she might have created an estate plan. This plan can take some of the questions out of the probate process since his or her wishes are clearly noted in the plan.
When a loved one dies without a will, or intestate, the situation is more difficult. In this case, everything will have to go through the probate process if the estate meets the requirements for this to occur. We realize that you might need some guidance as you work through all of this.
You must understand that there are a lot of different decisions you will have to make during the probate process. Making mistakes in these can end up costing you money, assets and time. You have to make sure that you understand your options and what the laws are related to the situation.
Probate proceedings usually come at a time when you are emotionally spent. You might not feel like you can take anything else right now. We can't make the decisions for you, but we can help you to simplify the process as much as possible so that you can continue to work on the healing process after the loss of your loved one.
