When you have had to deal with the passing of a loved one, you may need assistance from an experienced Sheffield Village probate attorney. The attorneys at Kryszak Law Firm provide knowledgeable and compassionate representation in all aspects of the probate process, and we can represent individuals on either side of a potential conflict.
Probate is a legal proceeding that deals with the estate of an individual who has died. The process begins when someone files a petition for probate in court, along with the will of the deceased individual. The will should designate someone to be the executor of the estate, and the judge can grant letters of testamentary authorizing them to manage the estate assets according to what was instructed in the will.
This includes paying taxes owed on behalf of deceased’s property if any are owed, reviewing creditor claims and paying the debts, transferring title of real property belonging to deceased, distributing money and personal items among beneficiaries named in wills, and more tasks.
A probate attorney can advise you on what is necessary and how to proceed with the many steps of estate administration. We also work closely with other attorneys, accountants, and business professionals during a probate proceeding, so we understand all aspects of your family or estate’s situation.
If there are any disagreements among beneficiaries that need resolution or if someone believes that the will is invalid for one or more reasons, these matters must be settled by court order before the final distribution process begins. It is important to have an attorney for all types of probate litigation.
In addition to handling legal issues for families who have lost loved ones, we also help clients plan ahead for their own estates. We assist in designing estate plans that will make the probate process easier for your family and beneficiaries.
