Thorough Guidance Through The Probate Process
The death of a family member is often accompanied by significant legal and financial hurdles. The process of settling a person’s affairs after their death is known as probate, and it is often a complex process.
At Sciarrino & Sciarrino, P.C., we help clients navigate probate and estate administration in Mount Morris and throughout the surrounding region, including Livingston, Wyoming, Steuben, Monroe, Allegany, Genesee and Ontario counties. We are here to guide you through this process and protect your rights in any legal disputes that may arise.
Probate generally entails the following steps:
- Valuing estate assets and debts
- Appointing an executor to oversee the administration of the estate
- Identifying creditors to the estate
- Paying taxes and creditors
- Distributing estate assets in accordance with a will
