Contact our estate planning attorneys to handle all aspects of the probate process, including distribution of assets and trust administration for people of modest means to multi-million dollar estates. Our probate litigation lawyers can take your case to court to recover assets lost to embezzlement or fraud committed by a trustee, administrator, or executor. We can assist people in preparing estate plans, wills, trusts, powers of attorneys, health care directives and living wills. Assets subject to probate include: personal property such as vehicles, furniture, artwork and jewelry; financial accounts owned individually rather than jointly with the right of survivorship or without a payable on death beneficiary; real estate that is owned individually rather than jointly with right of survivorship; an ownership interest in a business whether a sole proprietorship or individually owned shares in a small company; and much more. Probate records are open to the public. Therefore, the assets owned by an individual at the time of his death can be seen by members of the community. As a corollary to this, the amount of assets inherited by each of his heirs is also a public record. With more probate courts placing their records on line, the public will be able to access the records of deceased members of the community with a few mouse clicks. Probate litigation lawyer, Vince Maverick, can help you navigate through this difficult and unfortunate time of your life. If you're going through a probate litigation in Scotch Plains NJ, give him a call today to see what options are available. To avoid the probate process and minimize legal fees and/or retain privacy by not having probate records appear publicly, an individual should consider implementing a trust and funding it. The purpose of the probate process is to ensure that: any final bills and expenses are paid, including any taxes owed; any assets remaining are distributed to the beneficiaries named in a will; or if the decedent died intestate, any assets remaining are distributed to the correct heirs under the laws of intestate succession. Probate may also be required for an interest in real property exceeding $20,000 in value. Living trusts offer other advantages as well; they provide a plan for incapacity of the trustor and they allow the beneficiary to receive a 'stepped up cost basis' to date of death value for capital gains purposes. To discuss these and other advantages of the living trust in detail, contact the estate planning and probate attorneys at Maverick & Peters, LLC to discuss all your probate matters and available options.
