The loss of a loved one is a painful enough experience in itself. The process for winding up the legal affairs of the loved one and transferring their property should not be a burden, but often times it ends up being a major source of stress for the family. The person placed in charge of the estate by the Court (the personal representative) is a fiduciary to the beneficiaries and other interested parties - including the IRS. There are a number of legal steps that need occur after the death of a loved one, and certain parties have priority to the assets of the estate over other parties. The personal representative of the estate can incur personal liability to interested parties if the proper procedures are not followed.
Most probates in Alaska can proceed under the informal probate procedures of the Alaska Statutes and Alaska Rules of Probate Procedure. In these informal probate procedure cases, I try to remove some of the stress of the probate from the decedent's family by billing some of the work that is repeated in all probates as a flat fee. Due to the fact that every probate is different, some of the probate work must be billed at an hourly rate and cannot be billed as a flat fee. I will be happy to discuss your particular situation with you in free initial consultation. It will cost you and your family nothing if you decide not to hire me after that initial consultation.
