In the state of Pennsylvania, probate is defined as the court-supervised process of distributing a deceased person’s assets and properties. While the process can be lengthy and complicated, enlisting the help of a probate attorney can reduce your stress, costs, and time when facing probate.
By enlisting the help of a probate attorney who understands the nuances of Pennsylvania probate, you can address challenges such as:
- Probate Preparation. Your probate attorney will help you discover the deceased person’s valid wills or estate directives, which can speed up your probate process. You will also be able to follow the deceased person’s instructions more efficiently if you can plan ahead and set goals based on their wishes.
- Debts and/or Creditors. One of the most common aspects of probate in Pennsylvania is to identify which debts and creditors the deceased person still owed at the time passing. A lawyer will help you do this as well as properly allocate and value funds available.
