During the stressful and hectic period following the death of a loved one, it is often frustrating for families to deal with the legal issues involved in settling the descendant's affairs. Attorney J. Anthony Bradley will help family members or Attorneys navigate the details of Probate proceedings in Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Kentucky.
In all of these states, Probate Law requires that a lawyer handle the process of arranging for the administration of the estate of the deceased. The process can be fairly simple, if the Probate Court accepts a Will as valid, there is no contest to that Will, and the Executor or Executrix named in the Will is willing and able to take on the responsibility.
If there is no valid Will, the person who died was "intestate" and the Probate rules direct the court to appoint an Administrator to handle the estate.
In either situation, there are a number of responsibilities, including:
- Identification and notification of all potential heirs and creditors
- Publication of legally required notices
- Management of assets and real estate
- Arranging for the transfer of assets to heirs and creditors
- Filing gift, inheritance, and income taxes for the estate
