Our team has the right experience to make the process of probate go as smoothly as possible.
At The Law Offices of Kayce C. Staehle, we understand that losing a loved one is never easy, and that having to deal with a complex legal process while you’re still deep in grief will only make it worse. After someone dies, their estate goes through what’s called the process of probate, in which their property is distributed, their will is carried out, and any applicable taxes are paid. As you can imagine, having to deal with all of these legal intricacies on your own while mourning a loved one is an overwhelming prospect to just about everyone, but fortunately you can turn to an experienced estate lawyer to help you get through it as smoothly and quickly as possible.
When it comes to the process of probate, a great deal of the complexity involved will depend on whether the estate owner left a valid will, or whether their instructions were clear. If the answer to both of those questions is yes, then the probate process should be straightforward, as all that will be necessary is to verify the validity or the will and follow its instructions. However, if the estate owner’s will is ambiguous or nonexistent, then probate becomes more complicated, as the parties and lawyers involved will have to decide how to distribute the estate themselves.
Our team is proud to serve the Mooresville, North Carolina community, and we want to help you get through the process of probate with a minimum of stress. If you are looking for the right lawyer to assist you, we encourage you to give us a call.
