Legal Issues

 

Here you will find a growing list of legal considerations to consider before and after the death. By visiting the Community Links Section within our site you will be directed to the closest lawyer or law firm that is known in the areas ofestate planning and settlement legal matters. Our legal team in this area continue to provide informational input within our site for families seeking answers to their unresolved questions.



Do I need a Lawyer?
While there is no requirement to use a lawyer, probate is a rather formal procedure. One minor omission, one failure to send Great Aunt Tillie a copy of the petition, or a missed deadline, can cause everything to come to a grinding halt or expose everyone to liability.
Estate Settlement Issues
Wills, probate, administrator, social security benefits, veterans benefits, insurance benefits, joint property, estate taxes and other issues may appear overwhelming after the death of a loved one.
Important Documents
Locate as many of the following documents as possible: Wills, Deeds, Bank Books...
Death Certificate
Before the business and legal issues of the estate can be pursued, it will be necessary to obtain certified copies of the death certificate. You can order them from the Funeral Director or directly from the Registrar of Vital Statistics in your area.
Accounts & Deposit Boxes
Because banks are subject to both state and federal regulations, procedures can vary greatly from bank to bank and state to state. Some states have been known to automatically freeze joint bank accounts when one of the joint owners dies
Executors
Your executor has full resposiblility with regards to your funeral arrangements. If so desired your executor can change anything with reference to those arrangements. This is the person all funeral homes take direction from.
Administration of a Will
Wills are simple, inexpensive ways to address many estates. But they don't do it all. Here are some things that may not be accomplished in a will.
Questions about Wills
Though mostpeople are aware that they need a will, the majority -- about 70% of us -- don't have one. People procrastinate for many reasons, but it's important to know that writing a will doesn't have to be complicated or expensive.
Probate
Probate is the process that transfers legal title of property from the estate of the person who has died (the "decedent") to their proper beneficiaries
Notify Creditors
Creditors should be notified promptly following a death. If there is to be a delay in meeting debts or installment payments, you may be able to file for extensions.
