David A. LaRue, Attorney at Law, Represents Families During Probate
in the Steubenville & St. Clairsville Areas
What is Probate and
How Can an Attorney Help?
The probate process determines the distribution of a deceased individual’s will. After death, the probate hearing oversees the legal process of the administration of a testator’s estate. The goal of a probate hearing is to make sure a will becomes legally enforceable and to allow an executor to distribute the assets of the deceased. It is important to move through probate with a qualified estate planning attorney like David A. LaRue. Our attorney will guide you through the entire process and provide you with excellent representation.
What Happens if a Loved One Dies Without a Will?
One of the most commonly asked questions by people in the Steubenville and St. Clairsville areas involves what happens when their loved one passes away without a will. When this occurs, the person in question has passed away intestate and a probate process will happen to administer assets. The downside to probate without a will is that the courts determine asset distribution according to intestacy laws rather than the wishes of the deceased.
