When a person passes away either with or without a will, a court order will be required to finalize the affairs of that person and to transfer the property that person owned to the person who will own it now. This process is called probate. The purpose is to make sure that the estate is properly managed, that the parties are treated fairly, and there is something that definitively says what has happened with this property and the estate is closed.
While many of our clients are able to avoid probate entirely, there are occasions where probating an estate is necessary, advantageous, or both. In those cases, WM Law is ready, willing, and able to help you navigate the probate process. Whether WM Law helped you develop your estate plan or not, we will strive to get you the best possible outcome of a probate proceeding and we will strive to get that outcome in the most cost effective way possible.
