How Our Firm Helps Families After The Death Of A Loved One
The power of proper estate planning cannot be stressed enough.
Dealing with the death of a loved one is a difficult process. The added stress of determining where they have a checking account, if their mortgage payment is due, if they have paid their hospital bills, or what other assets they have can be overwhelming. Determining if an estate needs to be open and how to do that should not be a task that a grieving family should have to undertake.
We have assisted many families with the administration of their loved ones estates. Whether or not an estate needs to be opened in Probate, and what type of estate is appropriate, is something we deal with frequently. We can assist with items such as transferring real estate, transferring bank accounts and/or investment accounts, stock transfers and selling personal property.
Having someone there to help in the difficult situation of death of a loved one is invaluable, and is one less burden to bear during this time. We will meet with the family to discuss the steps to administer a decedent’s estate, whether or not that estate goes through Probate, and how we can work together and assist the family and take burden off their shoulders.
