Steps In The Probate Process

The attorneys at Joseph Yamaner and Associates work closely with personal representatives and executors who are responsible for settling a person's affairs. This includes going through the probate process and performing administrative duties according to a person's will. The steps in this process include:

  • Locating all estate planning documents, including wills, burial instructions, trust documents and more
  • Opening the probate process with the probate court
  • Locating all assets, including those residing in another state
  • Valuing the assets in the estate
  • Examining kinship
  • Paying final taxes and other financial obligations, including estate expenses
  • Transferring assets to beneficiaries and charities (if applicable)
  • Formally closing the probate process
  • 1404 Will Contests

Some probate cases are straightforward, but most are not. Personal representatives often run into difficulties with taxes, understanding the law or the process itself. The lawyers at Joseph Yamaner and Associates will make sure that you understand each of your roles and responsibilities as executor, and we will help you perform each duty as we go through the probate court process.

An Example Of The Firm's Dedication

Mr. Yamaner was an integral part of one of the largest and longest struggles to regain Jewish property that was taken by the Nazis in World War II. With the assistance of attorney Tali Sehati, he successfully located heirs around the world who produced critical documentation to further the cause. The case took more than a decade, and resulted in a German court granting restitution that continues to this day.

Will Contests And Inheritance Disputes

It is impossible to avoid disputes in every probate case. Family members might challenge a will's validity or argue that they were in fact entitled to certain assets of a decedent's estate. The attorneys at Joseph Yamaner and Associates have been involved in many estate-related disputes, and they know how to reach agreements without spending significant costs on litigation. They work hard to ensure families reach amicable resolutions that abide by a person's true final wishes.
