BHMK Law’s physical office is now open and operating on a modified basis. Most of our attorneys and staff have returned to the office and are on site to serve your needs, while those who are not continue to work remotely and take advantage of the technology investments we have made over the last few years. We are limiting the number of persons in the office at one time and have created special protocols around client visits to the office. Please discuss your needs and our protocols with your attorney or staff member. We are proud to continue to serve you at this time and continue to prioritize the health and safety of our clients, staff, and attorneys.

Handling your responsibilities as an executor

| Jul 8, 2017 | Probate |

If you have been named the executor of an estate, you may be facing different challenges and you could have a number of questions about your responsibilities. At Buechner Haffer Meyers & Koenig Co., our Ohio firm is very familiar with the hurdles that can arise during the probate process for those who have been given this responsibility in Cincinnati, and the rest of the state. During probate, it is vital to know your rights and go over the details of your circumstances if disagreements and other problems arise.

As executor, you are responsible for distributing the estate’s assets among beneficiaries. Unfortunately, some may disagree with how the estate is distributed and believe that you have violated your fiduciary duties. If this occurs, it is vital for you to defend yourself appropriately and have a good understanding of your rights. However, there are many other types of hurdles that can arise during the probate process, which you should also be ready to take on.

Whether you are facing tax complications related to the estate, are having problems with creditors, or are going through any other estate-related dilemmas, you should do everything you can to ensure that your responsibilities are carried out appropriately. As an executor, these issues can take a toll on you emotionally and financially, especially if you are struggling with losing a loved one. However, you should try to avoid additional problems by properly handling your responsibilities.
