Probate is the legal process of validating a deceased person's will and distributing their assets to their heirs. This process can be complex and lengthy, and it can cause stress for family members who are dealing with the loss of a loved one. However, probate is necessary for most estates, unless proper estate planning was done ahead of time.
At the Parker Law Firm, our probate attorney can help you with all aspects of the probate process. He can help you validate the will, gather all necessary documentation, and resolve any conflicts that may arise between family members and the executor of the estate. He can also help you with the many responsibilities that come with being an estate executor, from filing forms and settling debts to paying all necessary taxes.
One of the first steps in the probate process is collecting the necessary documents to file the probate petition. These documents include the decedent's original will, a copy of it, and a certified copy of their death certificate. Depending on the circumstances, you may also need other relevant affidavits, such as an Affidavit of Heirship if your deceased loved one has only one surviving heir or is only survived by cousins.
Once the necessary documents have been collected, the court will approve or assign an estate executor to handle the administration of the estate. The executor is responsible for managing asset appraisals, paying creditors, and transferring assets to beneficiaries. At the Parker Law Firm, we can help you with all aspects of administering an estate through probate, including determining the beneficiaries of the estate, locating assets and filing an asset inventory correctly and on time, accessing safe deposit boxes, filing timely notices with creditors, evaluating claims against the estate, and more.
Attorney David Parker can also help you resolve conflicts that may arise during the probate process. For example, if a person makes a claim contrary to the decedent's will or family members fight over inheritances, he can help you resolve these issues and protect your rights. If no one contests the will, he can also assist you with PROBATEZIP™, a streamlined process to help families through non-contested probate simply and easily.
