Newton Probate Attorney

Many family members don’t understand what probate law is. If a loved one passes away, a Probate attorney can explain the law, how it impacts the distribution of assets, and help you through the wealth distribution process involved with a will.  A Probate law firm is essential to this process and can provide clear legal advice on why certain assets are distributed in a certain way. A Probate attorney can also act as a mediator if a dispute arises and help you through the probate litigation process, which can often be contentious between family members when the probate period starts. Probate litigation is useful when there is a dispute over the final recipient of the assets. A Probate attorney can provide a legal buffer that protects you if someone disputes the distribution of large estate items. Contact the Law Office of Rosemary Paglia for legal advice in this area of the law.

What is Probate Law?

Probate is a legal process that takes place after someone's death. It usually involves proving that the deceased's will is valid, identifying the deceased person's property and having it appraised, paying outstanding debts and taxes, and distributing the property per the will or state law. Probate law firms like the Law Office of Rosemary Paglia can provide you with the necessary information to protect the will and all of the desires that were laid out by the creator and help you settle disputes that can often arise with the last will and trust.
