Judy-Ann Smith Law Firm, P.A
Probate and Estate Administration
Probate is the court-supervised process of administering an estate under a will or according to default rules when there is no will. In addition to filing the will itself, an inventory of the estate property, and various accountings need to be approved by the local commissioner of accounts until the final distributions are made. If you have been named executor in a will or are an heir at law of someone who passed away without a will and need guidance, request a free consultation today.
Small Estate Services
For relatively small estates, court-supervised estate administration can often be avoided. If a loved one has recently passed away with a small estate, please request a consultation and see if you can avoid a full estate administration.
A fiduciary is someone in a position of trust that acts for the benefit of someone else. If you need a third party conservator, executor for your will, or some other fiduciary role filled for either you or a loved one, request a consultation today.
