When the death of a loved one occurs, there are many hardships and difficulties the family faces. The estate administration process can be one of them, but doesn't have to be.
The process to be followed typically begins with the determination of whether the deceased individual died with or without a will. Thereafter, a Petition for Probate is filed with the Register of Wills and an estate account is opened. Assets are collected in later distributed to estate beneficiaries. Any outstanding bills and debts of the estate must also be satisfied. A Pennsylvania Inheritance Tax return must also be filed.
I understand how overwhelming the probate process can be in the midst of grieving the loss of a loved one. Allow me to help guide you and your family through the probate procedure, and bring closure to your loss in a caring and sensitive way.
One of the best and simple ways to prepare your Estate in advance and remove burdens from your family, is by having a Will prepared. Having a proper Will, Power of Attorney, or Health Care Directive, helps to reduce avoidable expense, family dispute, and unnecessary delay in the probate process.
The Will preparation process is simple and typically inexpensive. Call me today for a free consultation.
