If you have been named the executor of your loved one's will or have been asked to serve as family representative, you may be taking on something completely new. While people are trusting you to handle every detail of asset distribution correctly, it is understandable that you have many questions. Let us help. We are ready to serve as your legal advisor to help you eliminate or minimize the possibility of a challenge to the will, a trust or the transfer of property.
Probate is the legal process through which a last will and testament is validated; the decedent's assets are collected and valued; debts, creditor claims and taxes are investigated and paid; and, the remaining assets are distributed to heirs and next of kin per the terms of the will or under the applicable law.
