Probate - Estate Assets

Probate is tough on families and loved ones even when everything goes right. At The Kuo Law Firm, we provide guidance and representation with all aspects of probate. While we may not be able to completely eliminate the stress of the probate process, we can ensure that your interests are protected and the wishes of the deceased are honored.

Our services include:

Independent and Dependent Administration of Estates

The majority of the time, estates go through probate without court oversight – which is known as independent administration. However, there are circumstances where court oversight is required – which is known as dependent administration. Our firm is familiar with both types of administration and can tailor our services to fit the requirements of your circumstances.

Muniment of Title

With Muniment of Title, the probating of the will can be done in the most economical manner and in the least amount of time. It is ideal for smaller estates that are not complex. We can look over the will and determine if Muniment of Title is possible and advisable.

Small Estate Affidavit

If the deceased did not leave a will and the estate was worth less than $50,000, it should be possible to file a Small Estate Affidavit. Our team can look closely at your situation and help you move forward with the Small Estate Affidavit if it applies.

Affidavit of Heirship

Without a will, it may be possible to file an Affidavit of Heirship to allow the transfer of the estate to the heirs of the deceased. Our firm can verify if an Affidavit of Heirship applies to your case.
