Experienced Guidance Throughout The Probate Process

After someone passes away in Alabama, their estate must go through probate before beneficiaries can obtain the assets. The probate process involves numerous steps that can quickly become overwhelming and confusing, especially if you are grieving the loss of a loved one.

At Higey Law LLC, attorney Todd Higey can provide valuable guidance and support throughout every step of the probate process. As an experienced counselor and advocate, he can help clients through the process with skill and compassion. You can trust his knowledge and experience to support you through this difficult time. 

Streamlining The Probate Process

If this is your first time acting as an executor of an estate, the probate process can be confusing and overwhelming. Working with an experienced probate attorney allows you to share the burden with a professional, streamline the process and give yourself room to grieve.

Todd can assist you with every step of the probate process, including:

  • Filing the Petition to Probate
  • Identifying and collecting assets
  • Paying debts and taxes
  • Distributing assets

If someone passes away without a will, the probate process can be even more difficult. In these cases, Alabama law will decide which beneficiaries receive certain assets. However, even when there’s a sound will and estate plan in place, Alabama still requires the will to go through probate to ensure that it is legal and valid before distributing the assets.
