As your legal estate administration team, we encourage you to reach out to us well before probate begins for the best possible result.
When a person passes away, their estate needs to be managed and collected. Estate administration is the process of paying off the deceased person’s debts, gathering the assets listed in the estate, and distributing any remaining assets to the rightful heirs. The estate administration process can be complicated, especially for larger estates, and here at NorthPointe Law Group, we are here to provide the tenacious legal services you need and want.
As part of the estate administration process, most estates go through probate. This process can be formal or informal, depending on the intricacies of the estate. Generally speaking, an informal probate proceeding involves some basic paperwork, paying off any remaining debts, distributing the assets, and appointing someone to manage the estate. In other cases, such as when a will is disputed, formal probate proceedings may be needed. When this occurs, more court oversight and multiple court hearings are needed to effectively resolve the estate.
Regardless of the intricacies of the estate administration process, our team is prepared to provide the trusted, knowledgeable support you need. Our attorneys stay up-to-date on the ever-changing probate laws and requirements in the state, and we will ensure probate goes as smoothly as possible.
