Compassionate Support And Legal Guidance
Probate is a legal proceeding where the court distributes the assets and estate of a recently deceased person. The probate process allows the court to distribute assets and settle affairs in an orderly manner, to prevent fighting over assets between family members. Once the petition to begin the probate process is filed, the court appoints a personal representative to oversee the distribution and management of the estate.
At Swain Law Group, we can help you with every step of the probate process, including:
- Filling out the probate petition
- Property appraisals
- Discussing the options with the beneficiaries
- Ordering a death certificate
- Filing a will with the probate court
- Filing the final tax return
- Representing you in probate proceedings
When the decedent has a will in place, the court will follow their wishes on who will receive their assets. When there is no will in place, the court intervenes and follows state guidelines on who will receive the assets.
