Understanding Probate and When You May Need It

Probate is a legal process that occurs after someone has passed away to facilitate the distribution of their estate. If the deceased individual had a valid will, the probate process can be relatively straightforward. However, if there is no will or if the will is deemed invalid, the probate process can become more complicated.

You may need probate if the estate of the deceased exceeds $75,000 in personal property or $100,000 in real property. Personal property includes assets like bank accounts, vehicles, and personal belongings, while real property refers to real estate such as land and houses. If the estate’s value surpasses these thresholds, seeking legal guidance from the Law Offices of Douglas B. Price, P.C. can help you navigate the probate process efficiently.

Benefits of Seeking Legal Guidance in Probate

The probate process can be legally complex, especially for those who have no prior experience with such matters. Having our dedicated legal team by your side offers numerous benefits, including:

Expert Guidance

Our probate attorney has extensive experience in handling probate cases and can provide you with valuable insights and support throughout the entire process.

Avoiding Mistakes

As an executor or personal representative, you have legal responsibilities that may be unfamiliar to you. By seeking legal advice, you can ensure that you fulfill your obligations properly and avoid any accusations of mishandling.

Time and Cost Efficiency

Our knowledgeable attorney can streamline the probate process, saving you time and money while ensuring all legal requirements are met.

Let Us Help You Explore Alternatives to Probate

If the estate’s value falls below $75,000 in personal property or $100,000 in real property, a full probate may not be necessary. Instead, alternative legal documents can be used to distribute the assets. At the Law Offices of Douglas B. Price, P.C., we can prepare these legal documents for you at a much lower cost than a full probate, saving you both time and money.

Guiding You Through Estate Administration

The person responsible for carrying out the instructions in a will is known as the “executor” or “personal representative.” If you find yourself in this position, you might feel overwhelmed by the legal duties and responsibilities involved. Our dedicated team can provide valuable legal counsel and support, ensuring you fulfill your obligations correctly and avoid any potential mishandling or malfeasance claims.

Here are some of the duties and responsibilities you may be required to handle as an executor:

Navigate Conservatorships and Guardianships with Confidence

In some situations, a person may become unable to manage their own financial affairs and healthcare decisions due to mental or physical incapacity. In such cases, conservatorships and guardianships may be necessary to protect their interests. The process can be complex and expensive, involving court procedures and representation.

At the Law Offices of Douglas B. Price, P.C., we have extensive experience in handling conservatorship and guardianship matters. Whether you are seeking or opposing the process, we will provide you with the expertise needed to protect the person’s best interests and ensure a smooth legal proceeding.
