Probate Court Matters
When a person dies, his or her estate must be consolidated and distributed. Estate administration involves gathering the assets of the estate, paying off debts and distributing the assets that remain.
Dying without a will leaves an estate "intestate." In certain circumstances an action must be filed in the probate court must intervene. This can be a complicated process, especially for surviving family members who are still dealing with the death of their loved one. Our firm helps you take control of your probate matter and effectively guides you through probate administration. Contact our office for more information about your estate or probate issues.
In some cases, a dispute may arise over the distribution of an estate, even if it is stated explicitly in a will. These cases in probate litigation are called will contests, can take an emotional toll on an entire family. Although we favor settling inheritance disputes through negotiation, if this fails, we are also ready to represent heirs in court through probate litigation to protect their rights.
Property may also be distributed by creating a trust, which is an estate-planning tool that can replace or supplement a will, as well as help manage property during one's lifetime.
