At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, we understand that the loss of a loved one can be a difficult and overwhelming time. The last thing you want to worry about is navigating the complex and often confusing world of probate and estate administration. That's where we come in. Our team of experienced estate planning attorneys will guide you through the probate process, providing personalized advice and support to ensure that your loved one's wishes are carried out in accordance with the law.
When a person passes away, their assets must be distributed in accordance with their will or, if they didn't have a will, in accordance with the laws of the state where they lived. This process is called probate. The probate process can be complex and time-consuming, but our team at Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys is here to make it as simple and stress-free as possible for you.
We will explain the probate process in plain language and provide you with personalized advice on the best way to administer your loved one's estate. This may include the use of trusts and other estate planning tools to minimize taxes and ensure that assets are distributed efficiently. We will also help you understand your options for estate administration, including the appointment of a personal representative or executor to handle the distribution of assets.
Once you have decided on the best course of action for administering your loved one's estate, our team at Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys will handle all of the necessary paperwork and filings to open the probate process. This may include preparing and submitting the will, death certificates, and any other relevant estate planning documents to the appropriate court.
We will handle all of the legal details and keep you informed every step of the way. Our goal is to make the probate process as smooth and seamless as possible for you and your family, so you can focus on grieving and moving forward.
One of the first steps in the probate and estate administration process is to inventory and value the assets of the estate. This includes real estate, personal property, and financial accounts. Our attorneys will work with you to identify all of the assets, and will use their expertise to ensure that they are valued accurately. This is an important step, as the value of the assets will determine how the estate is divided among the heirs and beneficiaries.
Once the assets of the estate have been identified and valued, our attorneys will assist you in paying any debts and taxes that are owed. This can include estate taxes, income taxes, and creditors' claims. Our attorneys will work with you to ensure that all debts and taxes are paid in a timely and efficient manner, so that the estate can be distributed according to the wishes of the deceased.
