The Estate And Probate Process In Ohio And Kentucky
The probate and estate administration process can be drawn out, especially when complex assets are involved. It takes time to track down the deceased’s income and debt records and gain a complete understanding of his or her assets. Furthermore, determining how any remaining assets will be distributed among heirs and beneficiaries can result in some contentious disputes.
Some cases also end in litigation because of concerns that the deceased was taken advantage of by his or her caretaker. Resolving these disputes about coercion, fraud and unlawful actions is not about evening the score after a loved one passed away. It is about making sure his or her wishes are carried out appropriately.
Every member of our team works directly with clients to guide them through the legal process. When you contact our office you will gain an understanding of your responsibilities, your rights and how to proceed in accordance with the law.
