Facing the challenges of probate

If you have been named the executor of a will, you may be dreading the probate process, which is particularly daunting when you are in mourning for a loved one. At Goldberg Sager and Associates, we have helped many Brooklyn clients tackle the complexities of probate.

Being named executor comes with a hefty checklist of responsibilities that can be confusing, frustrating, and emotionally and mentally draining. Forbes notes that your duties as executor may range from ensuring that the funeral and burial are arranged in accordance with the desires of the deceased to filing the will with a probate court. Probate, the procedure by which a will is validated, is one of the major hurdles for executors.

As an executor, you are likely to face significant pressure from the family and friends of the deceased, who may be scrutinizing your every move. Emotions tend to run high during such times, increasing the potential for conflict and making your job much more difficult, particularly in situations where there is tension surrounding the mandates of the will. Furthermore, you have strict legal obligations and may be held liable if the probate process is not completed properly.

Many people find that seeking assistance from a qualified professional, such as an accountant or estate attorney, can safeguard the responsible and ethical management of the property of the deceased and provide crucial support during a time that is distressing for all. This approach may streamline the probate process by ensuring that the extensive paperwork involved is properly completed and that all legal requirements for estate dispersal are fulfilled. More information about estate management is available on our website.
