Unfortunately, lawyers are only equipped to handle the legal process
of probate. Let me be clear. You will absolutely want an attorney that specializes in probate - it's a must!
However, your attorney will not be able to assist you with the financial, emotional, and physical impacts & burdens of clearing out an estate. If there's a house involved, you will need an appraisal. Will the property require repairs or clean out in order to qualify for financing or would a cash offer from an investor make more sense? Will you be able to keep the home and rent or will you need assistance moving tenants / heirs out of the home? I could go on and on.
What about if there is no property? Is there a need for social services? Is there a need for financial planning? What about storage or moving expenses?
You might feel overwhelmed or burdened by everything involved in the process. This is where we can help.
