Simplify Probate With Skilled Legal Guidance
Probate can be a lengthy and expensive process. Even seemingly simple estates can lead to a complex probate process. However, working in tandem with a probate attorney can help simplify the process as much as possible.
At Reynolds Law, LLP, our California attorneys assist personal representatives with the challenges of probate. By completing the process with a focus on preserving assets, we can help you efficiently settle the estate.
Why Technique Matters In Probate
Depending on the circumstances, probate can have several negative outcomes, including:
- Some of the estate’s property may need to be sold in order to cover outstanding debts.
- The estate might suffer losses from a variety of court and legal fees.
- The estate and its assets become publicly available information.
- Estate administration might take anywhere from several months to several years, preventing heirs from accessing inheritance in a timely manner.
Although probate may be unavoidable, there are certain ways to speed up the process while protecting the decedent’s property and honoring their wishes. Our team knows how to approach both testate and intestate probate. We can help reduce the burden of probate for you and the estate’s heirs and beneficiaries.
We have experience giving personal representatives the tools that can simplify this time of transition. With our knowledge of wills and other estate planning methods, we can help you understand what to expect based on the estate. If a dispute arises, such as a will contest, we will be ready to represent the estate in litigation.
