when a loved one prepares a will or a trust before dying,
many families find it difficult to apply the intricacies
of probate and trust settlement to their situation.
For most families, there are several possible ways to
transfer assets after a loved one dies. At The Schofner
Law Firm, we examine your situation thoroughly and help
you select the most beneficial option for you and your
Probate is a court-supervised process for identifying
and gathering a deceased relative's assets, paying taxes,
claims and expenses, and distributing assets to beneficiaries.
The Florida Probate Code is found in Chapters 731 through
735 of the Florida Statutes. We aim to avoid the hassles
of probate court. When court involvement is necessary,
we focus on keeping it private, low-cost, and fast.
When a relative leaves an estate or trust, we can help
the Personal Representative, Trustee and family settle
it while protecting the interests of beneficiaries.
If you want to make sure that your loved one's estate
is transferred correctly, efficiently, and cost-effectively,
please contact The Schofner Law Firm.
