Know What to Expect in Probate and Estate Administration
There are important procedures to follow before inheritance can be distributed
to heirs when a loved one passes away. Our comprehensive estate administration
and probate practice includes:
Consultation and advice regarding estate documents, including whether the decedent had a will. Many people believe that if
there isn't a will, assets pass to heirs without going through probate.
However, probate is still required and assets will be distributed according
to Tennessee intestate laws.
Identification of assets and debts and distribution of property.
Probate process, which can vary significantly depending on the complexity of the estate,
if there are probate disputes, and various other factors. However, notification
of the death must be given to creditors and a TennCare release must be
obtained from the State of Tennessee prior to the conclusion of the probate process.
Claims and loan issues, with which we have extensive experience from both an estate's perspective
and a creditor's perspective. In order for assets to be distributed
and for the estate to be closed, Tennessee law requires all known claims/debts
to be paid or resolved.
Real estate holdings and investments, which are areas in which our attorneys have extensive experience.
Negotiation and resolution of family disputes, which our attorneys have successfully handled in hundreds of cases.
Probate contests and probate litigation. This can be a very complicated process and our attorneys have vast knowledge
and experience in representing clients going through will contests and
