Losing a family member is always rough. Grief can be debilitating but is a necessary process that can also bring healing. The process of probating a will is often a task that is best done by a professional who can represent you instead of you having to deal with it. This process must take place whether the person who passed away had a will or not.
Paying debts and distributing assets and property from the estate is a portion of what happens in probate administration. If you happen to be the estate administrator, you may want to contact an experienced and professional team who will assist you. This team can advise you of upcoming events, what needs to take place first and can also protect your interests.
Creating the correct documents and making sure that all obligations are met and the property is distributed just as the deceased individual would have wanted is just part of what a professional can do for you.
Of course, it is easier to go through the probate process if there is a valid will in place and other documents that clearly state what the deceased wanted to happen after his or her death. When a person dies without a will, it is said to be "intestate."
The process for an intestate estate can be confusing. You may want someone by your side who knows the laws of New York and can guide you through the often confusing process of getting debts paid and assets divided in probate litigation.
