When you experience a loved one’s death, it can be hard to continue on with your responsibilities. Even when the deceased has a will or other estate plan, it can be overwhelming to have to go through assets, paying off debts, and distributing any necessary inheritance. Regardless of whether you’re a named executor or heir, you need an experienced probate lawyer by your side to ensure you execute your loved one’s after-death plan properly.
What is probate?
Probate is a legal process that is used to make sure that the decedent’s debts are paid and the assets are distributed as they wanted. Without this system, every estate would be to be a legal battle. Probate is a court-supervised way to resolve these issues in a steadfast way. When there is no will, our legal team can help you follow state intestacy laws to divide assets appropriately. While Kentucky has no estate tax currently, it’s important to ask us about the tax implications involved with the estate.
