Your circumstances and your wishes are not the same as anyone else’s. Specialty software programs for drafting your essential documents cannot fully deal with the nuances of your needs. Estate tax planning and family limited partnerships may also be part of your estate plan.
Probate is the court proceeding that proves a person’s will is valid. It is also the process for administering a person’s final estate matters, such as collecting and inventorying assets and, after expenses and taxes are paid, distributing to rightful heirs.

Many trustees do not know the full breadth of responsibility that comes along with the title of “trustee.” If you have recently assumed the role of trustee or successor trustee, speak with a knowledgeable estate administration attorney to be sure you understand and uphold your duties in a timely manner.
On the other hand, if you are a beneficiary or heir of a trust and the estate’s trustee is not upholding their duty to prompt, complete communication and distribution of the trust, you may have a right to litigate to move the process along.
