Most people are faced, at some point, with the need to manage the estate of a family member or loved one. This task is challenging, and can seem almost overwhelming when you are grieving. Our attorneys work with you, offering knowledgeable guidance and compassionate support as you navigate the complex probate system.
Probate is the court-supervised process of identifying, inventorying, and distributing the assets of a deceased person, or “decedent.” If there is a valid will, assets are distributed according to that document; if not, Minnesota law dictates the distribution. The process is governed by laws and court rules, and can be expensive, time-consuming and stressful if not handled properly. For this reason, most personal representatives and executors of estates retain legal counsel.
The fees for a probate attorney's services are paid out of estate funds, so there is generally no out-of-pocket expense to personal representatives and heirs. The attorney's services reduce the stress and delays of the probate process, and may even save the estate money in the long run.
We invite you to contact us to discuss how we can help to guide you through the probate process as efficiently and easily as possible. Contact Huemoeller, Gontarek and Cheskis, PLC today at by phone at (952) 447-2131, or via email at email@example.com. We look forward to working with you.
