Probate & Trust Administration

 

The death of a loved one is an emotional time for his or her family members; those left behind must often deal with stressful decisions as to how that loved one’s estate should be handled. This can be a difficult time, & it is often necessary to take important steps within the legal system following a death in the family.

Probate is the court-supervised process by which the executor of the deceased person’s estate ensures that all debts & taxes of the estate are paid & all property goes to the people who are intended to received it after death. Probate is not necessary if a person had a well-drafted & funded trust, in which case trust administration will be necessary. Also, not all assets pass through probate.

Our experienced professionals can guide you through the legal processes required at death: paying proper claims, tax filings, accountings, asset divisions, & final distributions. Don’t make a mistake with your loved one’s estate at their death. This complicated process needs to be handled by a professional. Contact W.G.
