How A Probate Lawyer Can Help Out-Of-State Clients

Since 1980, I've been able to help people facing any number of scenarios. Some of the most common reasons clients seek my help include

The Probate Process

Even in straightforward cases, probate involves no small amount of paperwork and administrative tasks. You can count on me for help like this: 

  • A comprehensive estate review: Law Offices of Darrell C. Harriman conducts a thorough assessment of the estate and its assets to determine the probate requirements specific to the case. I see to it that all necessary steps are taken to initiate and complete the process efficiently.
  • Document preparation and filing: Handling the preparation and filing of essential probate documents is a valuable service provided to out-of-state clients. I work diligently to put documentation into compliance with California probate laws and requirements.
  • Representation and coordination: Whether in court proceedings or communications with involved parties, I advocate for your interests, coordinate with executors, heirs, and beneficiaries, and keep you updated on how the process is moving along. 

Asset Distribution

Getting assets distributed as your loved one desired can often require serious attention to detail, proper analysis, and transparency. With my office, you get benefits like these:

  • Asset identification and valuation: Identifying and valuing estate assets accurately is key to a smooth distribution process where inheritances may be allocated by a percentage rather than a fixed value. 
  • Beneficiary communication: This is important in any case, but it can be even more so when the beneficiaries are out-of-state and may feel out of the loop. I keep all involved parties in the loop on timelines and where the process is at. 
  • Tax and legal compliance: I understand all relevant tax law and legal compliance issues so as to make sure your loved one’s assets are distributed in accordance with applicable statutes.
