Can be utilized if the value of the estate is $75,000.00 or if the decedent is dead for more than two years. The persons who receive the estate assets remain liable to creditors of the decedent for two years after date of death unless a Notice to Creditors is published.
If a death occurs, our firm will assist the personal representative, family and beneficiaries with compassion and sensitivity. The firm is involved in all aspects of estate and trust administration. We represent individual clients and corporate fiduciaries in the probate process which typically includes admitting the will, qualifying the fiduciaries, tax planning (including post-mortem planning) and preparing inventories and accountings, collecting assets, notifying creditors and paying debts. We will also make sure that the appropriate tax returns are filed, that taxes are promptly paid and finally, that the balance of the estate assets are distributed to all beneficiaries in accordance with the decedent's last wishes.
