Estate Administration Is Much Easier With The Help Of A Good Lawyer
Our lives are governed by legal and financial requirements, and those obligations continue even after death. If you’ve recently lost a family member or another loved one, you may now be facing practical concerns about settling the final affairs of their estate, a process known as estate administration. This is a complex legal area, and it would be difficult to manage on your own even if you weren’t also trying to cope with your own grief over the recent loss.
Thankfully, working with the right attorney can take considerable responsibility off your shoulders and give you peace of mind when it comes to estate related duties. In Little Rock and surrounding areas, the firm to contact is Jurist Law Group, PLLC. Our firm provides comprehensive representation in all elder law matters, including probate and trust administration.
Counseling Executors Through The Probate Process
Probate (formally known as decedent estates in Arkansas), involves proving the validity of a will in court, paying off estate debts, filing a final tax return and distributing assets to heirs and beneficiaries according to the will and other estate planning documents. It is both time-consuming and complex, and most people who are not lawyers could benefit from the help of one.
If you’ve been named as the executor of a loved one’s estate, our attorneys will work side-by-side with you to meet all legal, financial and practical obligations associated with the estate. We will ensure that the probate process is completed efficiently and accurately, helping you avoid potentially costly mistakes and delays.
Guidance In Trust Administration Matters
Trusts are a common and powerful way to minimize or avoid probate and to pass assets to beneficiaries in very controlled ways. Trusts provide many advantages over a will, but they do have strict legal requirements, including oversight and administration from a trustee.
If you’ve been named as a trustee or successor trustee, our attorneys can help you understand your duties and ensure you meet all obligations associated with the position. If you have been named as a beneficiary to a trust and have concerns regarding the trustee’s performance, we can also help you understand your rights and legal options.
