When a family member or loved one passes away, people are often left stranded with no idea of where to begin. Scrivner Law assists clients to understand their rights and navigate the process. Probate is a process through which the decedent's property is held and managed by a personal representative during the administration of the estate. The personal representative makes distribution of the estate when the probate court approves the transactions made to pay claims and expenses and the proposed distribution schedule. Probate is necessary in Missouri unless the decedent did not have any property to be transferred at death through probate. An attorney is required to represent the personal representative in both supervised and independent administrations in Missouri. Some people may file small estate affidavits and letters of refusal for spouses, minor children, or creditors without attorneys. But using an attorney can avoid costly mistakes, especially if real estate is involved. Clients and their families turn to us for assistance with the probate process. Our team is equipped with insight into the process and the operation of the probate court. Put this advantage to work for you.
