Probate & Trust Administration

Probate is a court-supervised process for distributing the individually owned assets at the time of death. The personal representative of the estate, or the executor, is required to make sure that the estate is properly probated according to the will. As an experienced probate attorney, Hub Law Group, P.C. is capable of guiding the executor through the confusion and delays that accompany probate. The length of the probate process depends on how well the estate planning was performed, the type and size of the estate’s assets, and whether any heirs challenge the will. 

Probate can often be avoided with a living will. A living trust is a legal document that, just like a will, contains your instructions for what you want to happen to your assets when you die. But, unlike a will, a living trust can avoid probate at death, control all of your assets and prevent the court from controlling your assets if you become incapacitated.  Upon the death of a trust maker, our law firm offers legal services to your successor trustee. The trustee is responsible for seeing that the assets of the trust are distributed properly and in a timely manner.  An overview of the valuable guidance we provide includes:

  • Review of the trust document

  • Gathering of all trust assets

  • Explanation of trustee responsibilities

  • Estate Tax Analysis

  • Collection of death benefits

  • Creation of sub-trusts

  • Dissolution of trust
