A Guide For All Aspects Of Probate And Estate Administration
Probate and estate administration are extremely important issues that must be addressed after the loss of a loved one. They can be vitally important if the loved one was a business owner or investor that family members depended upon to make ends meet. Delays in the process can place a severe financial strain upon those left behind.
At Dornish Law Offices, PC, in Wexford, we help families who find themselves facing uncertainty after the loss of a loved one. Our attorneys help those located in Pennsylvania, as well as those outside the state who have interests here. We have detailed knowledge of the process, and what you must do in order to make sure things are completed as soon as possible.
How Probate Works In Pennsylvania
After a loved one passes, his or her property will need to be distributed to beneficiaries. This can be according to instructions in a will or trust, or according to Pennsylvania’s intestate laws if there was no estate plan. Probate is the process of transferring that property to the heirs of the decedent.
People are sometimes intimidated by the costs of probate or the time that it can take to distribute this property. Our lawyers will work to ensure that the transfer of real estate holdings, business ownership and personal property is as orderly as possible, to assist families in preparing relevant tax documentation and to ensure that the probate process doesn’t add to their stress during an already difficult time.
Have You Been Asked To Administer A Loved One’s Estate?
Your loved one may have named you as the executor/administrator of their will or estate plan. This means that you will be tasked with carrying out their final wishes to ensure that property passes as intended in these documents.
If you have never handled this before, it can be a challenging process. Our attorneys are well-suited to address any concerns that you may have about estate administration, and will work you to transfer these items as efficiently as possible.
