We advise clients during every step of probate
Probate can refer to the court process of validating a will so a personal representative can implement the decedent’s wishes or to the oversight the court provides for an estate administrator who settles an intestate estate — one in which the decedent left no will.
Most personal representatives are not familiar with the relevant laws, and some are even surprised to learn the decedent’s will named them as the responsible party. To complete the process of settling an estate, we typically help personal representatives with the following tasks:
- Getting court approval as personal representative/estate administrator and posting bond
- Filing the will with the appropriate probate court
- Locating beneficiaries
- Finding and assembling assets
- Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
- Hiring valuation, genealogy or other experts, when appropriate
- Paying creditors and claimants
- Collecting amounts owed to the estate
- Paying current and delinquent taxes as well as estate taxes
- Distributing property to beneficiaries
Estate personal representatives and administrators can easily make mistakes due to inexperience, stress and hasty decisions. At Huzjak Law Office, LLC, we provide clients with reliable, detailed guidance.
