Will Lawyers Near Me

A will lawyer near you could help your family with drafting the will or dealing with the probate process. Ideally, you want an attorney working with you on the estate planning process because it could minimize the chances that something could go wrong afterward. Every word in the will is taken very seriously by a court, and it is too late to change anything when you find a case in probate court. At the same time, sloppy drafting could have enormous unintended consequences. This is something that is better left to a professional instead of trying to do on your own with an off-the-rack document given what is at stake.

Once your loved one passes, the estate must pass through probate. This is a real process, and it is not something that attorneys just use to frighten clients. It can take many months for the will to go through probate. During that time, you could be dealing with the following:

  • Insurance companies
  • Creditors
  • Financial institutions 
  • Government agencies

How Attorneys Help During Probate

Hopefully, the probate process would go smoothly as the executor settles the affairs of the estate and distributes the property. However, there are a number of things that could go wrong, adding time and frustration to the process. These difficulties could be magnified if the will was not properly drafted. An attorney could help you navigate some of the possible minefields to keep things moving. 

Our attorneys are with you at every step of the way. We meet with you at the very beginning of the process and work with you on all of the probate documents. We help you identify all estate assets and assist with obtaining fair valuations of property. Precision and timeliness are important in the probate process, and hiring an attorney leaves much less to chance. We can simplify a complicated process and take much of the stress out of it. 

Will Attorneys Also Handle Contests

There are sometimes grounds for disputing a will. You could be the one who needs to challenge the will, or you may be in a position where a relative is contesting it. Either way, the legal process can be difficult, especially when the family is in the middle of dealing with loss. Here are some of the reasons for disputing a will:

  • Fraud
  • Undue Influence
  • Lack of testamentary capacity
  • The will was not properly executed

The best will contest is one that is avoided ahead of time, either through better drafting or a settlement between the pirates. Sometimes, there is no way to avoid litigation in your case. When it happens, we are there to fight for your legal interests, whatever side you are on in the proceedings.
