Philadelphia probate law firm

Planning your estate is not something you should put off. Many people wonder when is the right time to plan their estate and the simple answer is now. The only time you can plan your estate properly is when you are of sound mind. Since it's impossible to know when something may happen that causes you to pass away, you need to take the time to create a last will as soon as you possibly can. Our Philadelphia probate law firm can help you create a living will and we can also handle wills that have been passed on from your loved ones that need to be properly distributed.

Our Philadelphia probate law firm will provide you with information pertaining to your estate including the following:

  • Real estate
  • Personal property
  • Businesses
  • Life insurance
  • Debts owed to creditors, to the estate, or to persons
  • Lawsuits and other claims that have been filed

When a person dies, their final wishes that have been laid out in the will are sent to probate in the event that a person is left out of the will or someone contents the will. Our Philadelphia probate law firm will handle the transfer of assets from your loved ones will. We can also advise you on how you can prevent your will from going to a drawn out probate court after you pass away. Although wills need to go through probate to transfer the assets, the process is usually very simple when you work with one of our experienced attorneys.

The probate process usually lasts anywhere from 3-9 months. It mostly depends on the case and what type of information we need to collect. Some of the complex estates may take a few years as we need to gather all the assets, pay off debts, and pay taxes on the estate.

Our Philadelphia probate law firm deals with a number of cases pertaining to living wills and trusts. We strive to make the process easy to understand and simple for our clients in order to provide them with the best service possible.
