Probate is the process in which a will is proven and the estate is distributed among its heirs. Where no will is left, the probate court decides who will administer and inherit the estate. The probate process is often time-consuming, costly and overwhelming. It can take as little as a few months, but it is not unusual for it to take a few years for complicated estates. Hiring an experienced attorney can make the processes less painful. An attorney can ensure that the case is handled properly and appear on your behalf in court. At the law firm of Boehm & Boehm, our goal is to help you through the probate process as easily as possible.
If you are the trustee in a loved one's estate, it can be overwhelming to fulfill your obligations. A trustee must collect and appraise assets, collect and pay debts, file and pay estate taxes and distribute remaining assets to the trust's beneficiaries. This can be a tall order at a difficult time. Our firm is experienced in handling trust administration issues. We can guide you through the process and help ensure your trustee responsibilities are handled properly.
