In the aftermath of losing a loved one, there are far more legal details and logistics than you may be prepared to handle, especially when you are already struggling to cope with an emotional and physical loss. One of the last things you probably want to do is go through that person’s will, confront disputes that arise or bring up questions and concerns.
Unfortunately, these can be unavoidable challenges that need to be resolved, and they can’t be put off until you are ready to deal with them. However, you do not need to navigate the legal system and probate process alone. You can work with an attorney who can provide different types of support throughout any legal matter pertaining to probate litigation.
- Legal support: Many people are unfamiliar with the legal process, especially when it comes to matters like estate planning that don’t arise that often. Having an attorney deal with the paperwork, legal motions and taking a case to court can help you secure a fair and lawful solution you may not have been able to get on your own.
- Emotional relief: Between the sadness, frustration, anger, resentment and bitterness you may be feeling, it can be all but impossible to then make rational, objective decisions. The legal guidance of an attorney can be especially valuable in this aspect.
- Personal guidance: Your attorney can help you stay focused on the issue at hand and finding a resolution, which can give you a great sense of relief and confidence during such a rocky time. Additionally, an attorney can help you make decisions that prevent disputes from arising or getting worse, which can be critical.
For these and many other reasons, having a legal representative by your side in matters related to wills, trusts and probate can make a very difficult, complicated process a little easier.
