Our firm can help you navigate probate after a loved one dies
When a loved one dies, the ensuing time period is devastating and emotional. Powering through this grief can be overwhelming, and on top of that, the job of determining the fate of the assets and estate remains. This is when the probate process comes into play. This legal process affects anyone who dies and ensures possessions and property of the deceased go to the correct people. This process also ensures any debts or taxes owed get paid fully. Additionally, if there is a will, probate makes sure the directions in this document are carried out.
A probate lawyer works with the beneficiaries and the executors of an estate to settle the decedent’s affairs and protect their last wishes. Not only can a probate lawyer provide assistance after death, but they can also help plan for the probate process ahead of time. For example, a probate lawyer can help you create a trust to place your assets in. With a trust, your assets can be smoothly transferred to your heirs outside of legal and court proceedings.

Staehle in Mooresville, North Carolina. Our probate lawyer can help you plan for your passing and oversee the probate process, keeping your best interests in mind after your death.
