Navigating Probate Administration And Litigation

After a loved one’s death, family members and heirs not only have to deal with the heartache, funeral planning and burial, but also the complex and challenging probate process. Probate is a court-supervised process in which a deceased person’s assets are distributed and debts, bills or taxes are taken care of. The attorneys at Roderick Linton Belfance, LLP, are proud to provide comprehensive, high-quality legal support for family members through this difficult time.

How A Probate Lawyer Can Help

A skilled attorney can turn the intricate and confusing probate process into a less stressful situation for everyone involved. Some of the help they can provide include:

  • Assistance at a probate hearing to establish a will’s validity, and determining all the assets and debts of the deceased.
  • The attorney can ensure all filing deadlines are met, proceedings are correctly carried out and your interests are protected.
  • After debts and taxes are paid, the attorney files a report with the court, after which property transfers can start.

Our attorneys at Roderick Linton Belfance, LLP, act as skilled advisers to you and your family throughout each step.

Settling Disputes As They Happen

During probate, as with any complicated legal situation, disputes can occur – wills can be contested, trustees may need to be removed, additional accountings may be undertaken or guardianship disputes can arise. It is imperative to deal with each of these disputes as they occur in order to ensure the probate process continues as quickly as possible. Skilled probate attorneys are invaluable in these situations, and our attorneys are proud of the record of success they have achieved in probate and estate matters.
