When a loved one dies, if there is property that is owned in the name of that person, without any other joint owner or death beneficiary designated, the family may need to distribute the assets of the estate under the watch of the probate court to ensure that all actions are carried out according to the terms set forth in the will. While this is a generally straightforward process, it can be time-consuming and costly. We can help guide you through this process in an efficient and effective manner.
