Winter Haven Probate Lawyer

What Exactly Is Probate?

Probate is the legal process by which assets are gathered and distributed according to the terms of your will, if there is one, or applicable Florida laws if there is no will. In Florida, probate is required in most cases to validate a will, identify assets and heirs, settle debts and taxes, and distribute assets that were owned in only the decedent’s name. Our compassionate Winter Haven probate lawyer can simplify the process and remove some of the stress as your family focuses on the grieving process.

Why Do I Need A Winter Haven Probate Lawyer?

The process of probate is very complicated and time-intensive; having a lawyer’s help can ease the burden. A local lawyer who focuses on probate law will be very knowledgeable about the process and can answer any questions you have about it.

Osenton Law, P.A. will be instrumental in the following areas:

  1. Taking Care Of Paperwork: In addition to offering you advice on every matter pertaining to your case, our Winter Haven probate lawyer can also assist you in navigating the probate process by assisting you in completing and submitting all required documentation, such as the Petition for Probate, inventory of property, and estate tax returns. Furthermore, by educating you on the regulations and deadlines specific to the probate process, our firm can help ensure that no delays occur.
  2. Taken Care Of Assets: Probate is all about making sure the decedent’s assets are distributed fairly and evaluated. Our firm can help with these matters by working with evaluators, appraisers, and other professionals to determine the value of all assets and then distributing them fairly to the deceased person’s beneficiaries in accordance with their will (if they had one) or state laws.
  3. Take Care Of Debts: Our lead attorney, O. Reginald “Reggie” Osenton, will also help settle debts by listing all the debts that need to be paid, looking over creditor claims, working to settle debts that can be settled, and making sure that the debts are paid from the estate funds. If you are the executor or personal representative, having a probate lawyer who has experience with debt issues will make your job much easier.
  4. Take Care Of Disputes: We can help you resolve any disputes or disagreements that may arise, and we can also represent your interests if a dispute must be resolved in court. Having us represent you may reduce the stress of disputes with family or creditors.
