A probate lawyer is someone who works with executors and beneficiaries to settle estate affairs of the deceased. Throughout the probate process, the attorney will ensure all documents needed by the court are submitted in a timely fashion. They will be able to obtain all of the information of the assets that are in probate and help get an appraisal done on the deceased party’s properties. The probate lawyer will also make sure all taxes and debts are paid off after the sale of properties is made, before distributing the funds to the beneficiaries.
When is a Probate Lawyer Needed?
When an estate is over $150,000 or estate documents have real property listed like houses, condos, or commercial properties, then the estate must go through probate. Probate court may be very time-consuming and depending on how large the estate and what is in the documents it can become very complicated to distribute the funds to the beneficiaries. Going through the probate process with a lawyer will ensure that nothing falls through the cracks and no problems arise years after funds are distributed.
