Probate is the legal process by which a deceased person’s estate, including assets and liabilities, is administered and distributed to the proper beneficiaries. When a person dies leaving a valid will, the estate is administered in accordance with the will’s provisions. Even though a person leaves a valid will, some assets may pass outside of the will, such as life insurance polices, trusts and retirement accounts.
The probate lawyers at Stephenson Fournier have experience in all aspects of probate, including property distribution, will validation, trust administration, fiduciary duties and beneficiaries’ rights. We work with clients to prepare and file estate tax returns and gift tax returns. Our probate administration attorneys know how to streamline the process, provide creative ways to minimize time and cost, and reach solutions for our clients.
