When a loved one passes away, certain legal processes must be followed when distributing their estate and whatever assets have been left behind. These legal processes, together, are known as probate. Probate consists of numerous statutory requirements, which may be confusing or seem contradictory. A lack of experience in the law surrounding probate can result in lost inheritance and other complications—that’s why we recommend retaining a Sterling probate attorney from Wright Law Firm.
Why Hire an Experienced Probate Attorney?
With the help of an experienced Colorado probate lawyer, most estates don’t even require court supervision to administer. Here at Wright Law Firm, we can help, whether you’re a professional fiduciary serving as a personal representative, or just a family member serving in that capacity for a loved one.
The probate process, while straightforward with the help of an attorney, can be challenging to navigate on one’s own. It includes gathering all the deceased’s assets, which in itself can be more complex than most people assume. Then, the representative will need to pay debts out of the estate, including medical expenses, burial expenses, creditor claims, etc., before distributing the remaining assets according to the wishes of the deceased. Once the beneficiaries have received their assets and the estate has been fully dispersed, the representative will need to prepare an accounting and close the probate case.
In addition to servings as a representative in probate cases, at Wright Law Firm, we can also represent you if you are a beneficiary who feels that the personal representative may not be handling the estate of your loved one appropriately.
