Going through probate may not even be necessary, but if you jump into the process too soon, you may end up with unforeseen issues. We'll go over why moving too fast might be detrimental and costly to the estate.
Treating Family Like Family
Executors often get pulled between doing what the law requires and responding to the demands of family or other beneficiaries. Taking care of an estate must be done properly to avoid making mistakes. Acting out of emotion or without knowing the rules can lead to extra expense and conflict.
Moving Too Slow
There are many steps in handling an estate and they must be done in the right order and in the right time. We'll talk about how procrastinating can create problems or miss opportunities some of which can never be fixed.
