Probate is the legal process through which a deceased person’s estate is properly distributed to heirs, and designated beneficiaries and creditors are paid. Some estates, particularly those of high value or with complex assets like family businesses or retirement accounts, can take more time to probate.
We understand that dealing with the court system while you are experiencing the loss of a loved one can be extremely difficult. The attorneys at Schluesche Fields S.C. take you step by step through the probate process so that you and your family can focus on other important matters that arise following the death of a spouse, parent, or other loved one.
If you have been named personal representative of someone’s estate, or if you have recently lost a loved one and want to make sure that their final wishes are carried out, we can help.
It’s also possible to create a custom estate plan that avoids the probate process. If you would like to review your plan, we can create both revocable trusts and irrevocable trusts to transfer assets outside of probate. It saves time and money while affording privacy from the public court system.
