Probate & Trust Administration

Helping You Through a Difficult Time | Probate & Trust Administration

If you have had a loved one pass away recently, you may have been notified that their estate is going through probate or administration. When this is the case, you will likely need to appear to make a claim on the portion of the estate that you are entitled to. In many cases, this will all be laid out in the Will of your loved one, but that is not always the case. Whether there is a Will or not, the process, paperwork and hearings can get very complicated, and they are not something you want to try to navigate on your own.

Perryman & Perryman, LLP, can represent you throughout the probate process to ensure you get everything you deserve and that the statutory procedure is followed. Our services cover all aspects of this process including:

  • Will Contests – If you believe your loved one’s Will is invalid or they were manipulated into changing it, we can help fight for your rights.
  • Appointments of Personal Representatives – Having a personal representative appointed is often necessary if the beneficiaries of a Will can’t agree on one.
  • Inventory of Estate Assets – We can coordinate the process of having an estate inventoried so you know everything that needs to be distributed.
  • Creditor Claims – When someone passes away, the creditors often come out of the woodwork looking to make their claim. We’ll work to ensure they don’t get any more of your loved one’s estate than they are strictly entitled to.
  • Distribution of Assets – Once the initial probate process is completed, we can help with the legal and physical distribution of the assets of the estate.
  • Much More – Every probate case is unique, and we have the experience needed to evaluate your specific situation and provide the legal representation needed.
Trust Administration

In addition to helping you through the probate process, we can also administer various forms of trusts. This is a process that involves the distribution or the management of all property and other assets held within a trust agreement. This can be a one-time event, or an ongoing responsibility. If you are looking for someone to administer your trust after you pass away, we can work with you to set everything up today.
