Probate and Estate Administration
When a family member or friend has passed and has named you as an executor under his or her Will, OWM attorneys can assist you with the probate and estate administration process. Probate begins with registering the Will with the appropriate County's Register of Wills Office. The intent of the probate process is to sort out the transfer of a person's property at the time of death. Estate administration involves working with families and heirs to ensure that the wishes of the deceased are carried out. Estate administration can get complicated and emotional depending on the relationships of the family members to the deceased at the time of death, the complexity of the estate, property title issues, creditors who have attached liens to the property, and other debts.
OWM Law's probate attorneys can provide guidance on how to best inventory and evaluate estate assets, settle up with creditors, address claims against the estate, meet and mediate with family members and distribute the assets according to the wishes of the deceased and the law.
