Our firm can help administer your loved one’s estate after their death.
The process of administering someone’s estate after they die is known as probate. If the person left behind a last will and testament, the probate process will involve validating the will to ensure that the document is legally valid. Then, the will’s instructions can be executed and any applicable taxes on the estate can be paid. If you do not have a will when you die, the probate court will use North Carolina’s intestate law to determine how to distribute your assets.
