Delaware Probate Attorney Serving Wilmington
Work with a Wilmington probate attorney
Probate is a process that moves assets of a decedent out of an estate and into the hands of family or friends of the decedent. An important part of the probate process is the payment of creditors of an estate. This ensures that when assets are finally transferred to family and friends, they are transferred without a concern that creditors of the decedent may be looking to be paid from the assets.
The process can quickly become very complex—and the help of an experienced probate lawyer can move it along while minimizing the cost and the time required in Wilmington.
A probate lawyer should be sought in the case where a dispute is expected among the heirs. When family members expect other heirs to lodge disputes against the estate, an experienced probate layer may be able to avoid long drawn out problems by cutting to the chase and determining a strategy to avoid the dispute from the beginning.
