Probate Attorneys Serving Hopkinton
Legal Representation Throughout the Probate Process
Many people have been conditioned to shudder at the word “probate,” but the process doesn’t have to be excessively grueling. Enlisting an experienced and knowledgeable probate attorney from Marsden Law P.C. grants you peace of mind during the probate process as you can be sure we are handling the matter professionally and efficiently.
How Can I Protect Assets from Probate?
Comprehensive estate planning is a convenient devise to forego incurring probate after you pass. Estate planning gives you the opportunity to take inventory of your assets. Once you understand what you have and identify how you want to redistribute it, our attorneys can help you arrange airtight plans that leave the assets in question exempt from probate. Some techniques include:
- Making your private accounts joint accounts
- Naming a beneficiary on accounts that are payable-on-death
- Ensuring you are not the sole owner on any property
- Obtaining transfer-on-death deeds and registrations for real estate and vehicles
- Drafting trusts for a seamless transfer of remaining assets
Our attorneys will work with you and your situation to draft an estate plan to protect your assets from probate.
Benefits of a Probate Attorney
A probate executor, named by the decedent in their will, is legally able to lead the probate process unassisted. However, navigating court visits and communication with creditors and beneficiaries can be a large task for someone still coping with the pain of their loss.
Our attorneys provide the comforting assurance that the process is being handled for you that you and your loved ones can take the time you need to grieve. Our probate attorneys assist with the entire process, which typically flows as follows:
- We present the will to probate court
- We handle outstanding fees of the decedent
- We contact beneficiaries
- We distribute the assets
- We close the estate
- We handle all the paperwork and documentation
- We handle all the communication
In addition, we’re a resource to solve anything that arises along the way. We can mitigate disagreements, handle complications, or whatever the situation calls for. Our professional staff will provide an easy experience during a hard time. By allowing us to help you streamline the process, you can receive your assets carrying memories of your loved one and continue healing while we handle the rest.
