Reassuring Legal Guidance Through The Probate Process

The passing of a family member or friend can be a turbulent and emotional event. Accompanying your grieving is probably a flood of worrisome thoughts. Is there a Will? What do I do if there isn’t a Will? How do I handle the mortgage company and upcoming bills? How do I recieve access to bank accounts to pay upcoming bills? Will the creditors talk to me?
There are many practical and legal matters to consider. When the person who died left a well-structured estate plan, beneficiaries can move forward with minimal burdens to work out. Often, however, there are omissions or questions to resolve such as:

  • If there was no will, court action will be necessary to appoint an administrator to settle the estate.
  • If there was a will, you may need to probate the will and appoint an executor to settle the estate.
  • If minor children survive, a guardianship may be necessary.

If there is a will, the designated personal representative (executor or executrix) will be responsible for taking the will through probate.

  • If there is a trust, the trustee will likely need guidance to administer the trust correctly.
