Guardianships arise when a person is unable to care for his or her personal or financial affairs. In the process, the Court appoints someone to assist the person with his or her affairs. We represent clients in those matters.
A Probate Administration is the process by which a deceased person’s estate is administered and eventually distributed to the beneficiaries under a Will or the deceased person’s heirs. A lot of times, we negotiate with the deceased persons creditors to resolve those debts. There are also issues related to the division of the deceased person’s estate. Estate administration may include the probate process as well as non-probate transfers of the deceased’s assets.
Sometimes, it is not necessary to go through the time and expense of a probate administration. We will meet with you and discuss all of your options so you can make an informed decision.
