What Does a Probate Attorney Do?
The responsibilities of a probate attorney will depend on whether or not your loved one has a will. If there was a will, one of our probate attorneys could review it to ensure it was not written or signed under duress. Although there are many reasons why a will may be challenged, most of them go through probate without significant obstacles. A probate lawyer can advise the executor of choice on numerous legal matters.
If your loved one passed without a will, that person will have died “intestate.” Under these circumstances, the estate will be distributed according to intestacy laws, regardless of what the decedent’s wishes might have been. A probate attorney can assist the administrator of an estate in this situation.
Below are some of the responsibilities of a probate attorney:
- Collect and manage the proceeds of life insurance
- Find and secure all of the deceased person’s assets
- Have the decedent’s property appraised
- Prepare and file documents required by probate court
- Manage the estate’s checkbook
- Determine if estate taxes are owed
We understand how overwhelming it is to cope with the loss of a loved one. You can rely on us to lessen some of your burdens.
