The loss of a family member or close friend can be devastating. If you are a surviving spouse, next of kin, or a named executor in a last will and testament, you may have the additional stress of opening and administering an estate.

 

Covenant Law Group can walk you and your family through the necessary steps to open and properly administer an estate through the decedent’s last will and testament, trust, or if there is no will, through the laws of intestate succession. Our goal is to administer the estate quickly and efficiently.

 

Estate administration can be complicated by extraordinary circumstances. For example, there could be: 

 

  • Missing or misplaced testamentary documents

  • Competing wills or conflicting codicils

  • Evidence of undue influence over the testator prior to death

  • Creation of Testamentary Trusts

  • Wills that exclude the surviving spouse

  • Wills with suspicious or unnatural provisions

  • Wills executed by an incompetent testator

  • Small Estates or Insolvent Estates 

 

Contact us with your estate administration questions. We will meet with you to discuss opening and administering the estate or taking steps to stop probate proceedings if there is evidence of fraud or undue influence. The initial consultation is free. Call and make an appointment today.
