Losing a loved one is extremely emotional and often times the person suffering the most is the one responsible to determine how to manage their loved one’s affairs. The assets must be identified and ultimately used to pay their loved one’s debts with the remainder distributed according to a will or according to the intestate statutes. If you are in this situation, I can assist you in opening probate and having you appointed to be the personal representative of your loved one’s estate so you can inventory the assets, prioritize the payment of the debts, settle disputes with any creditors, distribute to the heirs and re-title property to its new owners. I can also assist you in providing the final accounting and closing the probate. There are several types of probate depending on the size of the estate and to whom the property was left. I can help you determine how to proceed and assist and support you throughout the process.
