When a person dies, important estate matters such as changes in property titles and completion of tax forms must be handled. If the decedent executed only a will, neglected to transfer assets to his or her trust, or failed to sign any estate planning documents at all (no trust or will), then the decedent’s estate will likely be subject to probate if the assets of the decedent's estate include real estate or exceed $184,500. Probate is the court procedure that oversees the determination of succession, payment of debts, and transfer of assets following a person’s death.
Probate executors may be faced with challenges, such as the sale of real estate, legal claims against the estate, tax issues, and unsatisfied beneficiaries who threaten to sue. DLK Law Corp. help you overcome these obstacles and provide the expert legal advice that is needed when tackling the probate court process.
