We assist those with estate administration and litigation needs

There are many phases of the estate administration process in North Carolina. The estate must be opened, and if there is a will, it must be located. All the deceased's assets must be inventoried. The deceased's creditors need to be notified of the death, and debts must be paid out of estate assets. Life insurance claims must be submitted. Income tax returns must be filed. Finally, the deceased's assets must be distributed per the terms of the deceased's will.

However, if you are chosen to administer a loved one's estate, you may be so wrapped up in making funeral arrangements, clearing out your loved one's home and going through the grieving process, that it is easy to overlook one of these steps. But, such an oversight can be costly, both in time and money. Moreover, disputes can arise between heirs that further complicate the estate administration process. Thus, some people choose to seek legal help when it comes to estate administration and litigation.

At Kluttz, Reamer, Hayes, Adkins & Carter, L.L.P., we understand that estate administration requires careful, urgent attention. We assist clients who face estate administration hurdles, or who find themselves subjected to a dispute regarding the deceased's estate. We believe in providing skillful and compassionate representation throughout the estate administration process.

Administering a loved one's estate is an honor, but it is also a big responsibility. Oversights that may seem small at first can grow into large problems that are difficult to handle alone. With the help of a legal professional, however, those facing estate administration problems can make informed decisions on how to proceed.
