Experience expertise and care in estate settlement and distribution.

What is the settlement and distribution of an estate?

The settlement and distribution of an estate is a legal process that occurs when a person passes away, leaving behind an estate. During this process, all of the deceased person’s assets, debts, and rights are resolved and distributed among the heirs or beneficiaries. This process can be complex and involve various legal issues. The method of distribution depends, in part, on the existence of a will, inheritance agreements, and marital contracts.
