How Can an Attorney Help You After A Loved One Dies?

Valuing an estate’s assets, getting through the Probate process in New York State, and filing an estate tax return can all seem daunting, especially if you are still mourning your loved one.  Documents are long and complex and subject to careful review by court officials. 

While good advance planning can help, much can be done after a death to expedite the process and lessen your stress.

  • Preparing all filings – Deepankar will work with executors to value all assets and prepare documents in such a way that avoids delays before the Will is admitted to Probate.
