How Can a Probate Lawyer Help Me as an Executor?
Executors of an estate are responsible for administering the estate, including going to hearings involving the will of the estate, handling and managing the properties of an estate, and being there for beneficiaries throughout the process. As an executor, you are essentially the caretaker of an estate during probate. Attempting to deal with questions about the validity of the will, settling a dispute amongst beneficiaries, and trying to pay taxes on several properties can become overwhelming, especially if the size of the estate you are dealing with is large. A probate lawyer can take all your problems off your shoulder and ensure you are doing the duties that you are required to do.
What Else Can a Probate Lawyer Do to Assist an Estate?
Probate lawyers can ease the burden of both executors and beneficiaries alike during the probate process. Whether it is collecting life insurance payouts on behalf of the estate, seeking appraisals for properties that need to be sold, assisting in tax and debt payments, drafting and filing pertinent documents that the estate needs during probate, and more, a probate lawyer is a swiss army knife that can help you with just about any aspect of the probate process that you need.
