Probate is often used as a dirty word. But the probate process can vary from a simple single document to a variety of processes; some short and some long. Of course, planning ahead can minimize what is needed. But contact us to discuss what is actually needed for your loved one’s affairs. People are often surprised that the process can be simple and inexpensive. Moreover, we will simply charge by the time we put into a file not a percentage of assets.
If your loved one left a trust, the administration of that trust and the transfer into the new beneficiaries’ names can be a complicated process that can leave the successor Trustee exposed to liability.
Please complete the “Contact Us” form or call our office at (605) 886-7281. Please let us know the name of the decedent, the date and location of their passing, and what types of planning they had completed.
