Representing Heirs In Estate Administration And Probate

If someone you love devoted his or her time and energy to creating an estate plan, he or she clearly cared deeply about the people he or she left behind and had specific wishes for his or her assets. At The Law Offices of George Castrataro, P.A., we help individuals and families follow those wishes and administer loved ones' estates in the most efficient way possible.

Probate

Probate is the process through which a person's assets are distributed after his or her death. Even if the decedent had a will and an estate plan in place, depending upon the circumstances, there are times when his or her estate must go through a formal probate process to make sure that debts are paid and that assets are handed out according to his or her wishes.

Representing Heirs In Estate Controversies

Unfortunately, disagreements are common during estate administration and probate, even among family members who typically get along. We represent heirs in will contests and disputes over estate administration.

In some cases, your family member's personal representative or executor may administer the estate in a way you find incorrect or inappropriate. In cases where someone's final wishes were unclear, it may be necessary to obtain your own lawyer to advocate for your interests.
