An Experienced Beaver County Estate and Probate Lawyer

Serving Clients in Beaver, Allegheny, Butler, Washington, and Lawrence County

At the time of the loss of a loved one, there are many things a person has to deal with.  Along with the grief you experience over the loss, you have to worry about funeral arrangements, getting bills paid for the deceased, and what happens with the assets and debts of the deceased.  An experienced estate attorney can help you with the process.

If there is a will, the executor of the estate will be designated in the will.  If there is no will, we can work together to determine who should serve as administrator of the estate.  An estate attorney can take care of the paperwork for you, make sure that you meet filing deadlines, and take care of the estate matters and help you through the system.  Should you need the advice of an estate attorney regarding the probate system, please feel free to call me.

 Estate Administration and Probate

Estate administration and probate can be complicated processes involving confusing legal requirements, deadlines, filing fees, taxes, and the distribution of assets. An estate attorney like Attorney Matvey can work through these issues with your loved ones and answer any questions they may have. The probate process includes multiple steps for an executor or estate administrator.  The executor of the estate must be sworn in.  The estate should be advertised.  An inventory of the estate assets should be filed.  An estate lawyer can assist you with each of these probate and estate administration steps.

Notice of the probate process must be given to the heirs of the estate.  An inheritance tax return must be filed for the estate and approval of the inheritance tax must be obtained.  Assets of the estate must be distributed to the heirs of the estate.  The estate must be closed with either signed approval of the heirs of the estate or through a formal audit of the estate.  A grieving family can use the assistance of an experienced probate attorney to get them through the estate process.  Contact attorney Thomas R. Matvey to discuss what we can do to assist you with the estates and probate process.
