Do you need an attorney for probate and estate administration?

Perhaps a member of your family recently passed away. As you process the news, you realize that you agreed to serve as the executor of his or her estate. Now that you face the probate and estate administration process, you may decide that you need some help. Fortunately, you do not need to take care of your duties alone.

Like many other Ohio residents, you can enlist the aid of an experienced estate administration attorney. Even if your loved one created a solid and well-documented plan, you will still have duties that require your attention that you may not be prepared for. The courts will require you to meet certain deadlines, submit certain paperwork and do all of the other tasks your appointment entails.

You will need to gather all of the assets belonging to the estate, pay bills and taxes, notify creditors and heirs, and more. Ultimately, you will distribute any assets remaining in the estate after all necessary amounts are deducted. If this seems a bit overwhelming, it can be. If you make a material mistake, you could end up personally liable for it.

These are just the challenges you face if everything goes well. Any number of things can go wrong when it comes to probate and estate administration, and if you are not prepared, you could end up entangled in a legal battle you never wanted. Instead of going it alone, you could work with an Ohio attorney experienced in this area of law who can help you navigate the process as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
