The Law Offices of Debra Speyer

When a loved one dies with or without a will, the administration of their estate is necessary to pass legal title of their assets. That is done by either probating their will or dividing the assets according the laws of intestacy. When a loved one dies with or without a will, there are a number of estate administration documents that must be filed with the Register of Wills or Probate Court as well as tax returns to be filed. Our office would be pleased to prepare these documents for you and assist you with this process.

    Jane T. met with Debra because her father had just died leaving a will. Debra prepared the necessary estate administration documents and accompanied Jane to the register of wills so that she was named the executor of the estate.

Probate: When a person dies, their last will and testament is probated. Probate is the legal process used to pass legal title of a persons assets to the people or charities named in their will.

Intestacy: When a person dies without a will, legal title of a persons assets pass to their heirs according to the laws of intestate succession.
