Description

To maximize the value of an estate in probate or another administration process, representatives may find it helpful to contact an established estate planning law firm. At Law Offices Of Max J. Paul, our attorneys advise clients serving as executors or administrators on how to comply with all aspects of estate administration accurately and completely. If you’ve been appointed to either position, you can benefit from sound legal guidance so you are not held personally liable for losses in the value of estate assets due to errors or misconduct. We guide individuals in the Boca Raton area and throughout Florida through probate and estate administration with confidence and efficiency.

Probate can refer to the court process of validating a will so an executor can implement the decedent’s wishes or to the oversight the court provides for an estate administrator who settles an intestate estate — one in which the decedent left no will.

Most executors are not familiar with the relevant laws, and some are even surprised to learn the decedent’s will named them as the responsible party. To complete the process of settling an estate, our lawyers may help executors with the following tasks:

Getting court approval as estate administrator and posting bond
Filing the will with the appropriate probate court
Locating beneficiaries
Finding and assembling assets
Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
Hiring valuation, genealogy or other experts, when appropriate
Paying creditors and claimants
Collecting amounts owed to the estate
Paying current and delinquent taxes as well as estate taxes
Distributing property to beneficiaries

Estate representatives can easily make mistakes due to inexperience, stress and hasty decisions. The lawyers at Law Offices Of Max J. Paul provide clients with reliable, detailed guidance.

Even in seemingly straightforward probate and estate administration matters, disputes among beneficiaries or between beneficiaries and the executor can arise. When these conflicts surface, you can count on our sound counsel and professionalism in negotiations or in court.

Distributing a decedent’s property cannot take place without an executor or administrator managing and overseeing the process. When a person does not leave behind a will or establish another means of wealth transfer, the most willing and capable relative usually seeks court approval to act as the personal representative of the estate. We can help qualified individuals obtain the status of estate executor or administrator. At Law Offices Of Max J. Paul, our goal is for you to settle your loved one’s estate as efficiently, quickly and easily as possible.

Probate and estate administration issues can feel overwhelming for people unfamiliar with this area of law. Law Offices Of Max J. Paul helps people throughout Florida to ease the burden.
