Skilled Legal Assistance And Guidance During Probate Process
After losing a loved one, many families have little time to grieve before they must begin the difficult process of probate. During this already overwhelming time, they are saddled with the responsibility of probating the loved one’s assets and estate — and already confusing and sometimes complicated process.
The Experience And Legal Representation You Need
Leach & Sullivan, Limited Liability Partnership has served Duncan and southern Oklahoma for decades and has assisted families and individuals throughout the area, throughout the probate process, carrying the legalities as they focus on mourning their loss. Our probate lawyers will provide clear answers and step-by-step guidance from start to finish, making sure the process is completed correctly and the rights of the family are protected.
What To Expect During The Process
During the probate process, all of the deceased’s assets must be tabulated and accounted for. Creditors and lenders must be paid back and settled with. Then, the remaining assets must be distributed appropriately. If the deceased did not have a will, this can be complex.
We assist throughout this process to make sure all property and assets are distributed correctly, limiting the possibility that the government or state will take more than necessary. Our attorneys also deal with any issues that arise, delivering experienced legal solutions.
We also assist in ancillary probate, where a family must complete probate in another state and then also probate land or other assets in Oklahoma. This often involves handling leases with the oil companies or others.
