Estate Distribution in Gilbert, AZ

After a person dies, their estate must be transferred to their heirs according to information contained within the last will and testament. This process is known as estate distribution and it’s a crucial aspect of estate planning.

When you want to learn more about the estate planning process, Walk-In Wills is here to provide the answers you’re searching for. Our attorneys offer the same level of assistance available at high-end firms but strive to make our services affordable and stress-free.

When it comes to estate distribution, your executor is responsible for many important tasks and duties. As a result, you must choose a person who is well-suited to the often complex and time-consuming job.

What Does an Executor Do?

While the process of distributing an estate can vary greatly depending on the situation, executors are often responsible for the following duties:

  • Providing documents to probate court
  • Informing others of the death of the estate holder
  • Creating a list of assets
  • Paying taxes and other debts with proceeds from the estate
  • Distributing assets to heirs as indicated in the will

With less complex situations, the estate distribution process can take about six months. With larger estates, the process can take up to a year or even longer.

Is Professional Legal Assistance Actually Necessary?

While there are lots of DIY estate planning options available, handling matters on your own is likely to lead to a poor outcome. Estate plans must be created according to certain rules and guidelines, or they may not be considered valid. Additionally, a lack of legal assistance could raise the chance of a contested will, which can be time-consuming and expensive.
