What Does A Burnet County Probate Attorney Do?
After the death of a loved one, legal paperwork and court appearances are the last thing most people want to think about. Contacting a Burnet County probate attorney can make the resolution of the decedent’s estate a much smoother and easier process for grieving families.
Probate is the legal process by which a person’s debts and assets are paid and distributed. After a loved one dies, his or her estate is overseen by the court and handled in accordance to the Last Will and Testament or, if no Will is present, according to intestacy laws and the petitions of a Burnet County probate attorney.
What Services Does A Probate Attorney Provide?
A probate lawyer doesn’t just handle probate matters that arise after a death. They can address legal issues including inheritance rights, property rights, conservatorships, guardianships, and more. If you need to draw up a Will, a Burnet county probate attorney can help. However, when the need arises for assistance after a loved one’s death, your probate lawyer can provide several valuable services:
- Attend court appearances.
- File legal paperwork.
- Provide proof of death to the court.
- Notify creditors of the death.
- Catalogue and appraise the assets of the decedent.
