Death in the family

The passing of a loved one is a horrible time. Sometimes the thought of an inheritance can bring out the worst in people. Confusion about what exactly is to happen after a person passes can cause tremendous conflict within a family.

The law provides a certain process whether a person dies with or without a will. Family members may have misconceptions about who is in charge and who is entitled to what.

It's important to consult an attorney as soon as possible to learn the process, and what needs to be done next to determine who is in charge, the payment of creditors and taxes, and the distribution of assets.

Probate is not a bad word Ė itís a way to transfer assets and deal with liabilities in an orderly fashion. The law is complicated, and itís best to have an experienced attorney handle the matter. Call Attorney Kozlowski for a free consultation about your situation. Know the law and know your rights.
