Van Valer Law Firm can help you with all the legal requirements for distributing the deceased’s estate. We ensure that all statutory requirements are met by filing appropriate Petitions with the Court, preparing notices to heirs, and publishing legal notices in the newspaper. We appear in court as required, as well as assist in the transfer of assets, the resolution of claims, and the implementation of the decedent’s Estate Plan.
As the personal representative of the Estate, you are responsible for proper due diligence with regard to the decedent’s assets, including collecting these assets, paying the decedent’s taxes and debts, resolving any disputes, and fundamentally distributing assets according to the terms laid out in the Will.
However, you are not alone with regard to this momentous task. Van Valer Law Firm is here to help. We assist clients with creating an inventory of the decedent’s assets, organizing records of estate transactions, outlining accounting documents, and preparing reports to heirs, legatees and the Court.
Even when considerable estate planning has taken place, the death of a loved one could lead to legal challenges to a Will, a Trust, or Guardianship. Ensuring that your Will is updated regularly to account for life changes, and maintaining organized records of debts, personal property, and other assets, simplifies the probate process.
