How can a Probate Attorney Help Me?

Whether or not the estate needs to be administered in a probate proceeding, a probate attorney can help in many ways. For one thing, the probate attorney can help you file the decedent’s will. Most states have laws that state that the decedent’s will must be filed with the district court within a certain amount of time (typically 10 days) even if there is no estate administration. The attorney can also help you file the necessary paperwork with the probate court to administer the estate. You will also need the attorney’s (and typically an accountant’s) help with the actual estate administration, even if all the assets can pass without a formal probate proceeding. Additionally, the attorney is there for you if any legal complications arise in probate. Find a probate attorney in your area to find out other ways he or she can help you.
