Raleigh Probate Lawyers Help Guide You

The Probate process can be confusing and complicated and can present serious legal and financial pitfalls for the Executor of the Will or the Administrator of an Intestate Estate (an Estate administered without a Will).  Are you aware that many assets of the deceased individual are not actually part of the Estate?  Are you aware that using estate funds to pay for expenses related to real estate may result in personal financial liability for the Executor or Administrator?

Let Hatch, Little & Bunn, LLP assist you in the probate process.  Our attorneys and staff can identify and classify which estate assets are part of the probate estate and which pass outside of the probate process.  We can guide you in the proper payment of estate claims and estate debts, and assist you with estate tax issues.  Our staff can prepare the proper Estate filings necessary for the administration of an Estate including:

  1. Application for Letters Testamentary or Letters of Administration;
