An invaluable asset for any family is an attorney who can assist with tackling any and all estate planning and probate matters. Probate is the process in which the estate of the decedent is settled following the drafting of a will. When we say settlement, we refer to the liabilities of the estate being paid off and all of the directives of the will being executed.

Probate Law Firm Representing Carnegie Hill
With a probate matter, it always start with the last will and testament. It is recommended to contact an estate attorney who specializes in drafting wills. Many document preparation agencies and even general practice lawyers are unaware of the various nuances involved in proper will execution. Witnesses of the execution of the will need to be properly prepped and certain announcements and statements need to be made by the testator. If any of these requirements are not met during the will ceremony, there is a possibility the last will and testament may be considered invalid and struck down by the courts.
Assuming the will is executed properly, an executor is chosen by the testator to manage the estate and ensure the property of the decedent is transferred to their preferred beneficiaries. This process usually takes a minimum of seven months. During this time, creditors have the right to make a claim on the estate for any outstanding liabilities. Our law firm is able to represent heirs, beneficiaries, executors, administrators, and creditors in the 10128 area.
