Dealing With Probate Can Be Time-Consuming And Draining
After a person dies, ownership of their property, assets and personal effects must be passed on to the beneficiaries listed in the will, if there is one. “Probate” is the legal name given to this process, however, not everyone’s assets will be subject to probate. The team at the Law Offices of Ginger R. Lore helps clients throughout Florida navigate the sometimes complicated process of finalizing your loved one’s affairs after they die. We are here to answer your questions and offer you the compassionate representation you deserve.
Solving Estate-Related Matters Effectively And Efficiently
During probate, the decedent’s property and assets are gathered and accounted for. Debts, creditors and estate taxes are paid, and the remaining property and assets are distributed to the beneficiaries. If there is a will, the will must be verified as the valid, final dispositive statement of the decedent (the official record of the deceased person’s final wishes). The will names the person or institution appointed to manage the probate process. If a person passes without a will, the “intestacy” laws of the state of Florida will control how the person’s assets will pass.
