Probate lawyer for peace of mind
A probate lawyer in Vancouver from Westcoast Wills & Estates can help executors as much as needed in estate administration. Our estate lawyers in Vancouver and surrounding areas also help families and administrators deal with estates when someone has died without a will (called intestate). The process is the same for both situations, but much more frustrating without a will.
Handling an estate is often an overwhelming task, made especially difficult as the executor is typically also grieving at this time. What’s worse, personal liability can fall on an executor for making mistakes while administering an estate. This makes it crucial for executors to obtain legal advice from the start from an experienced probate lawyer.
At a consultation meeting with one of our probate lawyers, executors will get fully educated on what needs to be done and how to do it. At that meeting, executors can choose to either hire the probate lawyer for further work on the estate or choose to take the advice and try to do everything themselves. Most of the time, executors choose to hire an estate lawyer to apply for probate on their behalf.
Even if an application for probate is not required, many of the same steps outside of this process are needed. Of course, our probate lawyers can help with any of these essential steps. For a list of some of the things a probate lawyer can help with, please click here.
