Settling An Estate
Probate and estate administration can include several responsibilities that must be completed in order to ensure that your heirs receive their share of your estate without future financial exposure. Because of possible tax exposures and claims of creditors, you need the benefit of experienced legal guidance through this process.
Wolfe, Rice & Quinn, LLC, works with the family to complete these tasks without charging fees for matters that can be completed by the family. This team approach saves the estate expenses and allows for a greater distribution of assets to those you care about.
Estate and probate tasks include:
- Collecting, listing and appraising the decedent’s assets
- Paying off creditors and collecting all debts to the estate
- Filing and paying for estate and other taxes
- Distributing assets to beneficiaries
If there is no will, or if the will cannot be validated, the court will appoint an administrator. The decedent’s assets will be distributed according to state law. This is why it is important to have a valid will in place when you die.
When Conflicts Arise
Disputes can arise during the probate process. Probate attorney John A. Wolfe often represents parties in probate litigation, resolving such problems as contested wills, breach of fiduciary duties, and issues arising from claims involving undue influence, incapacity, duress and fraud.
