Navigating Probate And Estate Administration

After a loved one passes on, it can be difficult to find a way to balance your mourning and grief process while also taking care of any legal obligations that come with the estate administration and probate processes. Trying to handle both of these on your own can result in the worst outcomes, which is why you should rely on the guidance of a compassionate and skilled estate administration team instead.

Choosing The Right Type Of Probate

In Missouri, there are several types of probate you will need to consider pursuing. We can review your unique needs and help you choose from the options you have available. Some of these options include:

  • Supervised probate – a probate process that has court supervision throughout the entire process. The court can also resolve any disputes that may arise, and this process is commonly longer and more expensive to resolve.
  • Unsupervised probate – a process where the administrator of the estate resolves the process on their own, in accordance with state law and deadlines. The court will only have minimal involvement in this process, mostly reviewing and approving certain stages. Without court supervision, this process can have more room for error.
  • Small estate probate – if the decedent’s estate is small enough, it may qualify for this probate process, which is commonly simpler and faster due to fewer assets being involved.

Whichever probate option is best for you, we can help you resolve things quickly and efficiently. Instead of taking months or years to finalize, we will pursue an option to settle things in a matter of weeks or months.
