For many families, the probate process presents significant emotional challenges. As Stuart probate attorneys, our job is to help you navigate the process with as little conflict as possible. Probate usually takes between nine and 12 months to complete. However, to prevent delays and make the process a smooth one, our attorneys gather as much information from our clients as possible.
We handle every step of the probate process, including all work with creditors. By ensuring that all tasks are completed in a timely manner, we keep the probate process on track. When disputes arise, we are well-versed in probate litigation. If you are an executor of a loved one’s estate and are facing a challenge by another family member, we can represent you in court.
If the decedent did not leave a will, or created multiple wills over the course of his or her lifetime, we can help sort through the confusion by taking an inventory of the decedent’s assets and petitioning the court to designate you as the personal representative of the estate. These steps are often necessary to ensure that assets pass to beneficiaries without significant delay.
