The Probate process is initiated by obtaining either Letters Testamentary (if there is a Will) or Letters of Administration (if the Decedent died without having made a Will).
This is the beginning of a process that often includes interconnected layers of complexity that require legal professionals who specialize in Probate Estate Administration—like the attorneys at American Wills & Estates.
Our Probate Estate Administration Services include:
- The formal preparation and filing of all necessary petitions, tax returns, pleadings and other required legal documentation
- The identification, marshaling and determination of which assets of the Decedent are going to be subject to Probate
- The resolution of potential disputes and disagreements between the heirs and beneficiaries
- The timely transfer and distribution of the estate assets and other real property
- The alleviation of your concerns and fears about the probate process through trusted guidance and understanding
We’re not going to mislead you—the Probate process can be involved, especially when there was no formal Estate Planning done by the Decedent during his or her lifetime. However, often times the our clients fears of their loved one's estate assets being tied up “for years” or being “taxed to death after death” are often unfounded. Enlisting the services of a competent and experienced estate attorney can go a long way toward guiding your family smoothly through the probate process.
