New Jersey probate lawyer Christine Matus releases a new article (https://matuslaw.com/what-does-a-probate-lawyer-do-for-you/) that discusses the importance of having a probate lawyer in New Jersey. The lawyer mentions that the last thing a family wants to do when a loved one passes away is to face complex financial and legal matters. However, even at the worst possible moment, this is something the family must have to go through.

According to the New Jersey probate lawyer, “Probate is the process of legally administering an estate after an individual’s death and handling the distribution of their assets to heirs and beneficiaries. For many, there is a valid will that will set out instructions for this. But often, an individual dies without the benefit of a will or trust, and the estate must be administered through the probate courts.”

The lawyer explains that even if a will is valid, there may be disputes between heirs or their families. An experienced probate attorney can help the client with this. A probate lawyer is an attorney who assists the heirs of an estate after a loved one has died. A probate lawyer can also be licensed by the state and is experienced in estate law.

Attorney Matus says that a probate attorney may be able to help their client with a variety of responsibilities. These include identifying and preparing documentation for the court, collecting proceeds from life insurance policies, and getting a valuation and appraisal on assets and real estate. They also assist in the payment and collection of debts.

Attorney Matus adds in the article that a competent probate lawyer can help clients save significant money and speed up their process. Some estates are small and straightforward, so a probate attorney may not be necessary. A probate lawyer is usually required depending on the estate's size, assets, and whether the family members are compatible.

“A probate lawyer will help with various issues and responsibilities during the probate process and can make an overwhelming and time-consuming process more manageable. Your lawyer will also be able to offer crucial advice regarding important estate matters and draft appropriate documents such as wills, trusts, and powers of attorney,” the estate lawyer says.

Lastly, the lawyer emphasizes the importance of having a skilled probate lawyer. Having an experienced attorney may be able to help the family understand their rights and ensure that the assets are distributed according to the owner’s wishes.
