Midvale, UT Probate Lawyers

If you’ve recently experienced the death of a loved one, we’re sorry for your loss. Death can be hard to deal with legally as well as emotionally; even if your loved one left behind a will when they died, their estate – everything they owned – will likely still need to go through a court process known as probate before their property and assets can be distributed to you and their other beneficiaries. Probate can be a time-consuming and difficult process, and there are many potential things that can go wrong or cause challenges along the way.

Hiring our compassionate Midvale probate lawyers to guide you through the process can minimize the pitfalls and prevent mistakes that can cost time and money. Trust Green Legal Group to help your family during a time when they need it the most! Call today to schedule a free 30 minute consultation and learn more.

Green Legal Group Can Lower Your Stress & Take The Burden Off You 

Probate means paperwork, and lots of it. Unfortunately, you need to complete all the paperwork correctly for the estate to make its way through the process fully. In most cases, there are very few ways to avoid probate. If your loved one fully transferred their assets to a trust, the estate does not need to go through probate, because the property has already been titled in the name of the trust. (Utah also has simplified probate procedures for estates that are worth less than $100,000.) However, most other estates will have to go through traditional probate. 

The Green Legal Group will handle your case from the beginning. If there is no way around the process, we will take care of everything for you, including:

  • Opening the process by filing the probate petition with the court
  • Filing the will with the court
  • Notifying creditors and heirs of the probate proceedings
  • Helping the executor inventory, manage, and appraise the assets
  • Working with creditors to settle debts
  • Filing the final tax return on behalf of the estate
  • Handling communications with the court and filing the necessary documents
  • Assisting with the final distribution of property
  • And more. 

There are many tasks and functions that are a part of probate. What makes matters more complicated is that an executor (the family member or individual who is legally responsible for carrying out these tasks and overseeing probate) can incur personal liability, which could result in lawsuits, if they make mistakes. You have enough on your plate without needing to worry about that, and you may not be familiar with all the nuances of probate, which is why it is in your best interests to work with Midvale probate lawyers who will take care of everything for you. 

Our Midvale Probate Lawyers Can Protect Your Interests And Work To Ensure That Your Loved One’s Wishes Are Respected

Part of the difficulty of probate is the potential of what can happen. After a loved one has passed, families deal with high emotions. When money and property are at stake, these emotions can boil over into disputes about the contents and validity of the will (particularly if the will is outdated or unclear) which can turn into costly litigation that can threaten to cause a permanent rupture in the family. Although they may be necessary under some circumstances, lawsuits should only be a last resort. A Midvale probate attorney can help you try to resolve disputes before they can go to trial, either through communication or negotiation, and can work with you to reduce the likelihood of them arising in the first place. If it comes to a legal battle, we are more than prepared to aggressively defend your rights and make sure your loved one’s last desires are honored.
