PROPER ESTATE PLANNING ALLOWS YOUR ESTATE TO AVOID PROBATE PROCEEDINGS
Lewman Law, APC is committed to leading you through the complicated probate process, or a trust administration with skillful and compassionate guidance.
After an individual has passed away, properly administering the estate to meet all legal requirements and properly distribute the assets to the beneficiaries is essential. Paying their bills and taxes must be performed by an authorized representative. If the individual’s assets were held in trust, the successor trustee can proceed without court oversight. If there is a Will or no Will in existence at the time of the death, the required steps for administering the estate will likely require filing a Probate Petition in Superior Court.
Whether trustee of a trust administration or executor of a probate proceeding, the tasks can be complicated and confusing. The law requires specific tasks to be performed in a timely manner. A trustee or executor has a very high “fiduciary” duty to the beneficiaries of the estate. Having the assistance of Lewman Law, APC can help one avoid potentially costly mistakes.
