Probate Administration In A Nutshell
Probate is the legal process through which certain assets of a deceased person are used to pay off the deceased’s debts and the remaining assets are distributed to the heirs of the deceased person according to their will or state intestacy statutes.
We Are Here To Help You Through The Probate Process!
Losing a loved one is very difficult. If you are the next of kin or have been appointed as the executor of an estate in a will, there can be added stress navigating the legal probate process and dealing with the courts to settle your loved one’s estate. If you find yourself facing the daunting task of administering the estate of another, you do not have to do it alone.
At Sound Legal Solutions, we help you with the administration of the estate and handle the difficulty of dealing with the court system. With our help, you and your family can focus on the important matters that arise following the death of a spouse, parent or loved one.
What Do Probate Services Cost?
The cost of probate in Washington state can vary greatly depending on the estate’s complexity. Typically, this ranges from $5,000 – $10,000 but can be much more. At Sound Legal Solutions, we require a $2,500 deposit to initiate the probate process and have you appointed as the personal representative of the estate. However, all costs of administering the estate are paid out of the estate itself. This means that you will be reimbursed for your initial deposit by the estate, and the remaining estate administration fees will be paid from the estate’s assets upon closing the probate.
