A Trusted Advocate At Your Side During Claims Against An Estate

One of the challenges during this process is dealing with claims against the estate. Within 150 days, creditors can file claims for outstanding debts, such as credit card bills, medical expenses, or unpaid utilities. The estate is responsible for resolving these obligations.After the waiting period, the executor presents a detailed account of all estate activities then the Probate Court reviews it and may hold a hearing for anyone with concerns or complaints about the transactions, income, expenses, and proposed distribution of assets.There is another waiting period of 30 days, during which objections can be heard if someone objects to the account. If there are no objections, the estate process concludes, and the property is given out according to the instructions in the will.
