Probate Guidance And Representation To Accomplish Your Goals
Assets are classified as probate or nonprobate assets:
- Probate assets will require the use of some form of probate process to get them properly distributed.
- Nonprobate assets, such as a life insurance policy payable to a specific surviving person, will not require the court’s help to administer or pass on.
Steering You From Legal Trouble
The guidance of an experienced attorney familiar with the transfer of assets, tax implications, resolution of creditors’ claims and proper classification of assets is important to ensure legal protections and proper distributions. For instance, if the estate of the survivor is at risk for the payment of estate taxes, it may be advisable to use a disclaimer to avoid estate taxes, even if use of the disclaimer will result in a probate being required.
Our attorneys prepare and file all documents required by the probate court or trust administration. We are your advocates in all hearings or proceedings, handling informal and formal proceedings of all types, including:
- Contested probates
- Uncontested probates
- Decrees of descent
- Summary administrations
- Ancillary probates
- Affidavits for collections
- Affidavits of survivorships
We work with you to prepare and file the inventory and accounting of assets of the estate, pay all final debts and taxes of the deceased, and oversee the orderly distribution of assets in accordance with the terms of the will, Minnesota intestate law or trust.
