Planning for “what happens if…” is not fun, but it will bring the peace of mind to you and those you care about.
Estate administration and probate refer to the process that helps you transfer your estate in an orderly and supervised manner. We provide council on how to handle the administration of the estate as well as the distribution of property and resolution of any claims made against the property, which generally includes collecting, inventorying and appraising assets; paying and collecting debts; filing and paying estate taxes; and distributing any remaining assets to beneficiaries. An attorney experienced in probate and estate administration can help simplify this complicated process.
