Please accept our condolences for the loss of your loved one. We know it is very difficult to accept the loss of a close family member, be it expected or sudden. While you mourn their loss and celebrate their life with family and friends, you also find yourself charged with dealing with funeral arrangements and financial considerations while honoring their wishes and final goodbyes. Fortunately, we are here to deal with how their assets are distributed in the event they die without possessing a valid estate plan.

Most states require that an estate hearing be held even if the decedent leaves a will and clearly states their wishes. Without a legal trust in place, a probate judge will need to rule on the validity of any will. As inheritance law is often complicated in Utah, it is best to consult our knowledgeable Richfield probate lawyers, who are skilled in handling probate cases.

How Can Our Richfield Probate Lawyers Help You?

As probate lawyers in Richfield who have handled countless probate cases in Utah just like yours, our firm knows how to navigate the probate system. We are prepared for any issues that may occur and can:

  • Provide you with sound advice and keep you updated
  • Distribute the decedent’s belongings according to their wishes
  • Assess the value of the deceased’s real estate, businesses, and personal belongings
  • Handle any outstanding bills and manage the estate’s taxes
  • Defend the estate or heirs’ rights in court if disputes arise during the transfer
  • Ensure assets are distributed according to the will or, if there is no will, intestate laws
  • Settle disagreements between trustees, heirs, or other parties
  • And more…

The length of any probate case varies and may last anywhere from several months to two years or even more, depending on factors such as the monetary value or complexity of the estate. The reason for this prolonged delay is that assets are essentially in “limbo,” meaning they cannot be transferred to beneficiaries or heirs. Our knowledgeable Richfield probate lawyers, however, can help you expedite and streamline the process. 

Why Is A Probate Lawyer Necessary?

Remember that if the courts name you executor or some other representative of the estate, you may face personal responsibility for mistakes or omissions. As the estate representative, you might be named in estate litigation and be required to pay any damages awarded.

Having to deal with things that are outside of your comfort zone can be tough. For example, going through the probate process of inheriting property while working full-time, planning a funeral, talking to creditors, insurance companies, and banks, going to court while trying to help family members who are angry or grieving, and dealing with the death of a loved one can be very difficult. 

At that point, when you should be grieving the loss of a loved one, is the burden of a burdensome, frustrating, and thankless experience really what you want to deal with? Are you willing to put your financial security and peace of mind in jeopardy? It will be worthwhile to contact our Richfield probate lawyers to find out how we can simplify the probate process for you.
