Probate Administration Service
When a family member or loved one dies, it is an emotionally difficult time. It can be overwhelming, too, especially if you have been named as the probate administrator in the will of the deceased. Probate administration can be a technical process that requires a lot of time and energy. The Sirkin Law Group, P.C. offers probate administration services to help you with these responsibilities.
If you have been named the probate administrator or executor in a will, you have a wide range of responsibilities facing you following the death of your friend or family member. We can help you with all of the necessary steps, including:
- Submitting the will to the appropriate probate court in the appropriate jurisdiction;
- Ensuring the court properly approves the appointment of the executor or administrator;
- Providing proper and required notice to all of the creditors of the estate;
- Tracking down and providing notice to all of the beneficiaries and potential heirs;
- Paying the debts of the estate;
- Filing accounting with the Probate Court; and
- Distributing the assets according to the terms of the will.
Our skilled and practiced legal team can help you with any or all of these steps with our probate administration services. When you are trying to grieve the loss of your loved one, adept legal assistance can help ease your path and give you peace of mind.
Probate administration services can also help you minimize the possibility of additional challenges, such as legal claims against the estate. Failure to provide the appropriate notice to all creditors, for example, can mean that later on there can be legal claims made by these creditors. Our team can make sure that the notices are done properly and the claims paid timely to head off the possibility of future litigation. Our team can also assist when there are disgruntled beneficiaries or angry family members who were cut from the will. We have experience and knowledge in providing professional legal assistance to probate administrators to settle these issues quickly and with a minimum of trouble. When the issue cannot be settled, we also have extensive experience in probate litigation, meaning you can rely on us for all of your probate needs.
We can also provide probate administration services when there is no will. When there is not a will, the estate will have to be settled according to the laws of intestacy. Laws of intestacy can be nuanced and complex. Administering an estate can be difficult, and the more close relatives the deceased had, the more complicated it can be. Common complications can include blended families, deceased adult children, and no living children, all of which are common family situations. We can help you understand the law and distribute the estate in the proper way as dictated by California law.
