When a loved one passes away, his or her estate often has to go through a court-managed process called probate or estate administration before the assets are transferred to the beneficiaries. The length of time needed to complete the probate process depends on the size and complexity of the estate, as well as the requirements and schedule of the local jurisdiction.
Probate can seem like a daunting task, especially after just losing a loved one. If you are named as an Executor of an Estate, you are responsible for carrying out the provisions of the Will, which includes collecting assets, paying debts and taxes owed, filing tax returns and distributing assets to the beneficiaries. We have the experience to assist you with every step of the probate process.
