Henderson & Henderson – Probate Lawyers in South Carolina
It is never easy to have to deal with the death of a loved one. Issues can be even more difficult following the death of a loved one, especially if they did not have a proper estate plan.
Probate occurs following the death of someone who had assets, property, and debts under their name. Probate hearings can be complex and even contentious. These issues can slow down the probate process exponentially. You should consider letting Henderson & Henderson help with the probate process. Spend more time focusing on family and healing and less time on the rigors of probate with the help of our law firm.
How Does Probate Work?
Probate can be a complicated process, especially if the size of the estate in is large and there are many beneficiaries. While probate may be arduous, it is also necessary to ensure the beneficiaries of an estate receive the assets left behind by their loved one. Probate can be easier if a valid will was in place, but it still needs the professional help of a lawyer. The will can dictate which beneficiary will receive what assets. However, not everyone has a will in place during the time of their death and often the will administration is more complicated than it seems.
Lawyers can aid during the probate process by settling any disputes that may arise. Families are complex, so when it comes time to settle the affairs of an estate, things can become contentious quickly. Our firm can work with all parties to not only ensure the validity of the will but work towards a resolution.
Along with contesting a will, other disputes can arise that involve the value of the assets of an estate and even how an executor is handling the distribution of assets. As an executor, if a family member of the estate you are administering has a bone to pick with the contents of the will, even at no fault of your own, you may be questioned about whether or not you are fulfilling your fiduciary duties as an executor. Ensure you are protected from any liabilities by enlisting the help of a probate lawyer for all of your probate-related matters.
