Regardless of whether your loved one had a will at the time of his or her death, the estate must be probated before assets can transfer to beneficiaries. Because probate follows a loved one’s death, the process is often an emotional one. At Karen Ann Ulmer, P.C., in Bucks County, we aim to make the process as anxiety-free as possible.

The length of probate of an estate in Pennsylvania depends on the time it takes to complete the steps associated with probate. The probate process includes several important steps, such as:

  • Notifying beneficiaries
  • Notifying creditors
  • Paying debts, including credit card debts, tax debts and other debts
  • Transferring assets to beneficiaries

To ensure that the probate process is an efficient one, our attorneys strive to complete each step promptly so that the process stays on track. By maintaining a commitment to efficiency, we also take action to preserve the value of the estate to the fullest possible extent.

At times, disputes arise during the probate process.

Whether you are a beneficiary who wishes to contest the actions of an executor or an executor facing accusations from a beneficiary, we have the knowledge and experience to represent you.
