Probate Guidance When You Need It Most
After losing a loved one, you have many things to think about, not the least of which is figuring out what happens to the deceased’s property. It may be the last thing you want to worry about, but it must be done. The good news is that you do not need to figure it out alone.
At Bingham Legal Group PC, our team is led by attorney Lauren M. Underwood with nearly 30 years of experience. The probate process is not simple or easy to navigate without the guidance of a skilled lawyer. We will be here for you at every step of the process, even if disputes arise among family members or other interested parties.
Estate and Probate Administration Has Many Facets
How much are the assets worth? How can you ensure they are distributed in accordance with your loved one’s wishes? What about debts? Estate and probate administration have many facets. We can ensure that you comply with relevant laws, settle all debts, distribute assets, and meet filing and accounting deadlines and guidelines.
If your loved one dies without a will, Michigan law will dictate how assets are handled. We can protect your interests during the probate court process. Your loved one may have left a trust in place of, or in addition to, a will. We can explain to you how these documents may differ and affect one another.
When Disputes Arise
It is common for family members and other interested parties to disagree during the probate process. We have helped countless individuals and families through probate and trust disputes, including contesting the will and claims that a fiduciary breached his or her duty.
