Probate

Helping Protect Assets in Probate

If your loved one died and named you executor of their will, they trusted you to set forth their estate administration wishes. As an executor, you may have to make serious decisions if the estate carries major debts, has complex property ownership or contains other complications.

Our East Providence, Rhode Island, law firm can help you carry out your loved one's wishes through probate. We have more than 30 years of experience representing executors in the probate process.

Will or No Will?

When a person dies without a will, the court gets involved in the estate administration. The state appoints an Administrator to be responsible for dividing the property and estate assets to appropriate beneficiaries. The Administrator must go to court to gain permission to pay the usual bills that are addressed in a will.

The Probate Process

As executor, you must file the will with probate court within 90 days. As executor of your loved one's will, you have automatic power of sales, without needing permission from the probate court.

This means you can pay bills, liquidate assets and distribute funds according to directions in the will. You and other beneficiaries are spared the expense of court costs and the added delay from seeking probate court decisions.
