Guiding You Through the Difficult Process of Probate

After a loved one passes away, his or her will may be required to go through the court process of being proved valid or invalid. This process is called probate. During probate, creditors have an opportunity to file claims against the estate and receive payment. After fees, taxes, and creditors are paid, any remaining assets are disbursed to the beneficiaries of the will.

If a person dies without a will, his or her estate may still have to go through the process of probate. The state of Michigan has a set of rules to establish how assets will be divided to relatives and close friends after fees and taxes have been paid.

As your Farmington Hills, Michigan, legal counsel, we can guide your loved one's estate through the probate process. We help to simplify the procedure which saves time and money for you, as a beneficiary.

Supporting You Through Will Contests

As an estate goes through the probate process, there is not a guarantee your loved one's final wishes will be followed. The court offers an opportunity for will contests. A will contest is a dispute over the validity of the document by a beneficiary or administrator.

If you believe your loved one's will may be invalid or you are facing a challenge from another beneficiary, you need an attorney experienced in will contests. The Schwartz Law Firm can assist you with this difficult situation and advise you on how to proceed based on Michigan law. Contact our office today for a free initial consultation.
