Hire us as your probate attorney after the death of a loved one.
When someone passes away, the assets included in their estate must be distributed according to the directions they left in their will, as well as the laws in North Carolina. When you hire a probate attorney, this professional guides the executor of the estate during the probate process, from identifying the assets included in the estate to distributing any inheritances to the heirs.
There are many tasks a probate attorney oversees during the probate process, including:
- Collecting the funds from any life insurance policies
- Having appraisals done on the estate’s property
- Helping with the payment of any debts and bills
- Preparing and filing any documents the probate court requires
- Determining if any estate or inheritance tax is due
- Resolving any income tax issues
- Managing the estate’s checking account
- Transferring assets from the estate to the appropriate beneficiaries
