What is Probate Law? Why Would I Need A Wilson County Probate Attorney?
Typically, a Wilson County probate attorney is a legal professional with a targeted focus on probate law. At some point or another, everyone will be faced with the death of a loved one or relative, and will need to prepare for their own eventual passing. Often a decedent dies without a Last Will and Testament in place. In those instances, the court must take the decedent’s assets, put them into an estate and administer the estate in accordance with state and federal laws and statutes. Even in the instances where there is a Last Will and Testament, the court may need to be involved in the administration of the estate to validate the will. The court can help to confirm that the decedent’s last wishes are properly carried out.
The probate process is complicated and involves forms, paperwork, and sometimes appearing in court. There are deadlines that are set by codes and statutes, which must be always understood. All this can be confusing and extremely time consuming for an inexperienced. A qualified Wilson County probate attorney can make the entire probate process virtually painless.
What Can My Wilson County Probate Attorney Do?
There are many different things that a probate attorney can do on your behalf. The probate attorney can help make an otherwise complicated and often emotionally charged process easier by doing the following:
- Attend hearings and court appearances on your behalf
- Monitor all court and legal deadlines
- Prepare and file legal paperwork
- Assist with the resolution of disputes between beneficiaries
- Notify creditors of the estate
- Assist with the auditing and accounting of estate assets
