Probate Administration Attorney | Winter Park
When a loved one dies, their assets, directed by the will, are not immediately given out and their debts paid off. Rather, there is a time-consuming and sometimes costly process called probate. This process is used when the decedent did not leave behind a trust. Probate is the process of officially proving the validity of a will in court. During probate, the decedent’s debts must be paid off, as well as any taxes that they still owe. When a will is admitted to probate and the will is put into effect, only then can gifts be made to beneficiaries and the will executed. Usually, probate is a fairly straightforward and simple process.
There are circumstances where family members are able to dispute the validity of the will. They can even object to a family’s state of mind. These disputes need to be handled in a professional fashion by an experienced attorney. This is to avoid costly delays and family feuds cut short. Aubrey Harry Ducker Jr. is a Winter Park probate administration attorney who steers clear of problems, resolve disputes, and carry out their duties as executors of the will.
