Losing a family member can be both emotionally and legally difficult. Your loved one’s estate – all of their property and everything they own -may have to undergo a Utah court-supervised process known as probate. Probate can be lengthy, burdensome, confusing, and costly, but it will likely have to occur in order for you and your other family members to receive the inheritance your loved one left behind. Without the help of a probate firm, you’re likely to make expensive mistakes, and the case may take longer than necessary. That’s why Green Legal Group is here to help.

We can guide you every step of the way through the process and make the process smoother. Our probate lawyers can represent both personal representatives/executors who have been tasked with overseeing probate and beneficiaries who are contesting how probate is being handled. Call us today to schedule a free consultation and learn about your next steps.

Probate Is Complicated. Green Legal Group Can Make Sure Your Experience Is As Straightforward & Stress-Free As Possible.

No one wants to deal with the paperwork or other legalities of probate when they’re grieving; unfortunately, probate usually has to occur unless your loved one planned ahead (which they may not have had time for or realized they needed to do). Even if they had a will, probate will still need to occur unless your family member owned all of their assets jointly, or had a comprehensive estate plan that owned their property in a trust. In the state of Utah, if the value of the estate is less than $100,000, then an affidavit can be filed that can also bypass probate.

Green Legal Group can help you understand if there is any way that you can avoid probate, or if you have to start the process. If it turns out that you can’t avoid probate in Utah, you don’t have to handle your legal responsibilities alone. Green Legal Group probate lawyers can take care of everything, including:

Filing the will and submitting the probate petition and documents with the probate court
Formally notifying creditors and heirs
Administering the estate by inventorying, protecting, and managing the assets
Appraising and valuing assets
Settling debts with creditors
Filing final tax return
Remitting estate taxes
Distributing remaining assets to beneficiaries as per the will or state law
Communicating with the courts to close the estate by filing the necessary documents with the probate court
And more.
We can take the legal burden off you. Our probate lawyers can analyze the details to ensure that your loved one’s wishes are honored and that you don’t make mistakes that can prolong the process, incur additional costs, or result in personal liability.

If Your Probate Case Involves Disputes, We Can Protect Your Interests & Your Loved Ones Wishes.

Probate in Utah can get messy, especially if the deceased had no will, or if the heirs disagree about the contents/validity of the will or actions of the estate executor. When someone dies, tensions and emotions may be running high; any conflict can lead to lawsuits. Litigation is most likely to occur if the will has unclear terms, or if there are more beneficiaries who have claims, or if there are beneficiaries who are minors, or if the estate is particularly sizable. If your probate case involves a dispute, Green Legal Group will first seek to resolve it before it becomes a more complex issue, but we are more than capable of representing your interests and rights in court if necessary.
