The legal team at Duncan & Associates, PLLC is skilled at helping you avoid the costs and pitfalls involved with Probate. Probate is the legal process for distributing assets to heirs and beneficiaries as well as paying off debts owed to creditors at the time a person dies. When someone dies, a Will or Trust may determine what happens. If there is no Will or Trust, then the state’s intestate succession laws apply and provide a hierarchy for who gets what. Probate can involve court proceedings or probate can be handled informally outside of Court.
Duncan & Associates, PLLC’s attorneys can make it easier for you to deal with the legal complications that come when a loved one passes away by exploring your options for taking care of identifying, collecting, and distributing assets as well as handling creditors.
