When a person dies with a will, the person is said to have died “testate.” If a person dies without a will, the person has died “intestate.” If your loved one has passed, a search should be made to see if they left a will.
Losing a loved one is a difficult time for you and your family. Administering their estate may create more unwanted stress and hardship. Estate or Probate Administration may be needed to implement the estate plan you have created, or as a result of the lack of an estate plan. We diligently and compassionately help executors and administrators of loved ones’ estates in carrying out their legal duties and responsibilities.
At the Piemonte Law Firm we can help you by:
- Preparing and filing all documents and forms required by the court to begin, administer, and close estate proceedings.
- Preparing an accurate inventory of the estate.
- Ascertaining and paying valid estate debts.
- Collecting and distributing estate assets to the appropriate beneficiaries.
- Filing and preparing any estate or individual taxes that may be due arising out of the administration of an estate.
