Charlotte Estate Administration Lawyer

Losing a loved one can be a stressful and emotional time in your life. Our attorneys have not only the legal experience but also the compassion and care to guide you through this difficult time. If your loved one created an estate plan, it is clear that he or she cared deeply about the people he or she left behind — and that he or she had specific wishes about what should be done with his or her assets and property.

Our experienced, knowledgeable Charlotte estate administration attorneys have extensive experience helping people honor the wishes of the loved ones they have lost. We work with personal representatives, trustees and other beneficiaries in matters including:

  • Guidance regarding the necessity of probate or consulting to determine if it can be avoided
  • Coordination with personal representatives and beneficiaries
  • Identifying and valuing assets related to a formal inventory
  • Running the notice to creditors in order to ascertain debts of the decedent
  • Filing appropriate paperwork with the court
  • Assistance distributing estate assets to the beneficiaries
  • Income and estate tax planning and coordination with other advisors to ensure compliance
  • Post-mortem planning including disclaimers, portability, and updates to estate plans of heirs

At Stewart Law, P.A., we have the experience and the knowledge to help clients through trying estate administration matters, including probate and asset distribution.

Probate is the process through which a person's assets are distributed after his or her death. Even if the decedent had a will and an estate plan in place, depending upon the circumstances, there are times when his or her estate must go through a formal probate process to make sure that debts are paid and that assets are handed out according to his or her wishes
