Even under the most peaceful circumstances, the death of a loved one is a painful experience. It can be made more emotional when dealing with the legal details associated with the deceased’s estate.
You need a confident and capable legal team to make sure issues of probating wills and determining succession are handled expediently and responsibly. The DeJean Law Office has years of experience in handling these kinds of settlements. As difficult as it is to close a chapter in life after someone passes away, it is also important to be able to move forward with a clear, legally sound path forward.
One of the most common issues complicating wills is succession, a legal proceeding in which the heirs and beneficiaries of an estate are found and contacted, and the property to be distributed is clearly identified. When multiple heirs are involved, and when their locations are unknown or scattered, it can be time-consuming to finalize these issues. However, they must be settled in order for heirs to secure what is known as a “clean title” to property. This enables heirs to move forward productively as they decide on next steps.
Regardless of the size of the estate, DeJean Law can assist you in all aspects of settling a will and determining succession. Call us today to discuss your needs.
