Probate Administration

When a family member is deceased, one of the more challenging tasks is handling the estate and the probate process. Probate is the legal step of transferring ownership of property or assets to the rightful heir according to instructions in the will or trust. If you have been named executor of a will, then you will have the responsibility for ensuring that all of the correct documents and forms are filed, as well as actual distribution of property. Farhat Law Firm's seasoned attorneys can assist you with administering probate using our many years of experience in California probate court. We will help you make sure that all legal requirements are met and the estate is handled without problems or delay.

How We Can Help The Executor Of An Estate

While it is possible for an executor to manage the probate process on their own, it can be a daunting challenge for one who is unfamiliar with the forms, documents and processes required by the probate court. This responsibility can last anywhere from six months to a year, and having a lawyer at your side will make your job much easier to manage. If you have legal assistance, then you are free to focus on the more personal aspects of the estate, such as communication with heirs, locating and distributing property or simply providing for security of estate assets.
