Whether you are making plans for your property and family members in the event of your passing or are currently dealing with estate issues due to the passing of a friend or family member, Attorney Armen Sefyan can help. Estate planning is a multi-faceted, often complicated process, especially when there is disagreement over the terms. Attorney Armen Sefyan will walk you through the probate – the process used to determine whether an individual’s final wishes are considered valid and legal. This stage includes advising executors on how and when to distribute assets, dealing with estates where past creditors need to be repaid, or if assets are deducted to cover the cost of the estate taxes and other bills. This is also when any lawsuits against the estate or individual who has deceased are handled. Depending on the type of property, the probate may take time to administer, becoming a process that can be incredibly complicated and technical. Attorney Armen Sefyan is the best antidote to the intricate and sometimes frustrating process.
Wills and trusts set up before an individual passes, are executed after the probate period has passed. A will is defined as a legal declaration wherein an individual details how his or her property should be transferred in the event of his or her death. A trust may be used instead, and is considered a legal document in which the individual sets out rules that need to be followed in order for the beneficiaries to obtain and retain rights to the property in question.
