They say the only certainties in life are death and taxes. It's inevitable that those elements come together in probate, along with titles, deeds, transfers and the unavoidable fees.
Many are surprised to learn the steps of probate - the process of handling an estate after someone passes away - but it's an essential procedure to avoid issues later on. For example, many home titles are in both spouses' names. The title doesn't automatically transfer upon death, which can cause problems when the house is later put on the market. By working with a lawyer, you can avoid many common hassles and missteps.
When everything is handled as it should be from the start, nothing will come back to hurt you later. We understand the many facets of probate administration and we can guide you through the process.
