Probate and Postmortem Administration
The passing of a loved one is a traumatic and stressful event. With many immediate tasks to attend to, including disposition of remains, funeral services and obituaries, the last thing one wants to consider is the probate process. However, strict time frames often apply in postmortem situations that may impact the administration of a decedent’s estate and disposition of his or her assets if not addressed in a timely fashion.
The Law Office of Pieter Van Dien, P.A. offers comprehensive settlement services to assist you with all aspects of the postmortem process, whether involving a probate administration, postmortem trust settlement or simply the transfer of assets after death. All of these areas involve critical decisions that may have a lasting impact on beneficiaries.
As each postmortem situation involves different circumstances, fees for probate and postmortem services vary. In some cases, an agreed upon flat fee will be appropriate to allow for comprehensive settlement services without concern for hourly charges. In cases where more limited services are needed, an hourly billing arrangement may be more appropriate.
Please contact the firm to discuss services you may require. If you are uncertain if legal services are needed and would like to discuss your situation in more detail, please consider an initial one hour consultation to review the matter further.
