Probate is the legal process by which the court ensures that, upon your death, your debts are paid and your property and assets are distributed in accordance to your will. If, at the time of your death, you do not have a will, your property and assets will be distributed according to state law.

Our firm helps guide individuals and trustees through the intricacies and obstacles of the Probate Court to through the final administration of an estate.

However, due to the various complexities, high costs and lack of control presented by the probate process, our office recommends avoiding probate through the use of Wills and Trusts and a range of Estate Planning related tools.

Estate Planning is the process by which property is organized, while you are living, to ensure that it passes to who you want (spouse, family member, charitable organization), when you want, while trying to minimize the taxes, costs and potential obstacles associated with such transfers. Wills and Trusts are the two most well known estate planning tools, but other important documents include Powers of Attorney and Advanced Health Care Directives.

At Kirakosian & Associates we work closely with our clients to identify their needs and concerns and prepare a comprehensive estate plan tailored to achieve each client’s unique goals and intentions.

Contact our office for more information on probating an estate or to find out how you and your family could benefit from a will, trust or other estate planning documents.
