Helping You Navigate Through Estate Administration

After a loved one passes away, the administrative issues of their estate must be addressed. This is important to ensure heirs receive their inheritance, while creditors are paid the money they are entitled to. This may seem simple enough; however, very specific laws and time limits must be followed. Even an innocent error could result in severe penalties. With Oakland County attorney James Warr's help, you can avoid any unnecessary complications. He will guide you through the process to ensure all the details are covered at the right time, in terms of:

  • Appraising and valuing all of the assets in the estate
  • Filing the required documents with the probate court
  • Filing state and federal tax returns
  • Paying income taxes and estate taxes
  • Paying any remaining debts to creditors
  • Distributing any remaining assets to heirs or beneficiaries

When loved ones define their wishes upfront in an estate plan, families are not left guessing what their family member would want after he or she passes away. This can greatly reduce the chance for the validity of a will to be questioned.

However, disputes can erupt at any point if a family member believes his or her loved one was coerced or did not have the mental capacity to make important decisions at the time the estate plan was established. When this happens, you need the backing of an experienced probate litigation attorney. James Warr has extensive estate administration and probate litigation experience. He will take every measure possible to preserve your loved one's intentions.
