Inheritance Rights
At Ganim Legal, P.C., we take a comprehensive approach to our probate practice. This includes educating clients on probate laws, the probate process and their rights to inherit. We represent a range of clients who have an interest in an estate, including spouses, children, stepchildren, grandchildren, parents, relatives and third parties who have been named in a will or trust. Our practice is led by Paul Ganim, an experienced probate lawyer with an in-depth knowledge of probate, estate and inheritance laws.
Understanding Your Right To Inherit

Your right to inherit property can depend on numerous factors, such as your relation to the deceased and if you were named in the will. When you work with Attorney Paul Ganim, he will take the time to explain your position, inform you on your property entitlement and advise on all necessary steps leading up to asset distribution.

As a Connecticut inheritance rights lawyer, he can also help you understand issues surrounding:

  • Inheritance rights under a will or trust.
  • Intestate succession (inheritance rights when a family member dies without a will).
  • Inheritance rights for blended families
  • Distribution of real estate
  • Distribution of personal property
  • The time frame for asset distribution
  • Inheritance rights and claims of abandonment
