Probate Attorney

Many wills are subject to probate, which is a comprehensive process involving many steps. During probate, the court will prove that a will is valid, locate assets, settle outstanding debts with creditors, and provide assets to heirs according to the terms of the will.

Here at Walk-In Wills, our attorneys have assisted numerous clients with will creation. However, we also help residents of Chandler, AZ gain a greater understanding of probate and what it entails, which ensures greater peace of mind for you and your loved ones.

What Happens During Probate?

One of the reasons why probate is so intimidating is because it involves numerous steps, such as the following:

  • The executor files a petition with the probate court and provides the death certificate, last will and testament, and other documents
  • The court will review the will to prove its validity and make certain that it truly represents the wishes of the deceased
  • The executor must send notices to any beneficiaries, as well as creditors
  • Assets, both tangible and intangible, are assigned a monetary value after a thorough review
  • After outstanding debt is settled, heirs will receive remaining assets according to the terms of the will

Navigating probate is a complex and lengthy undertaking for executors. That’s why many elect to work with an attorney to access much-needed assistance.

How Can a Probate Attorney Help?

A probate attorney will assist the executor with each step of the probate process, from filing the petition to closing the estate once assets have been distributed. They can also provide professional guidance in the event the will is contested, or some other issue arises.

Most importantly, an attorney will make certain that all the tasks are carried out correctly and according to schedule. Mistakes during probate can be tough to figure out and can also delay when inheritances are received.
