Probate is the legal process for transferring assets and sorting out the affairs of a deceased individual. Though it is avoidable with proactive planning, probate is common, and we love to help clients who have recently lost a loved one. Whether you just need to get the house transferred out of mom’s name or there as a long list of assets and potential beneficiaries, we can help.
Most probate matters fall into one of the following categories:
Small Estate Affidavit - $400
Determination of Descent - $3,000 (including court costs and publication fees and assuming no contests)
Simplified Administration - $5,000 (excluding court costs and publication fees, and assuming no contests)
