A Kansas City Probate Attorney

When a family member dies, the Missouri probate process and the administration of an estate can quickly devolve into complications, particularly if several heirs are involved, and they don’t see eye to eye. Disputes about the validity of a will or trust, as well as the proper manner to execute the will, can make heirs to see red, and resolving these issues often requires legal intervention. To resolve differences, call a Kansas City probate attorney.

What is probate?

Nolo Law for All says “Probate is a legal process that takes place after someone dies. It includes:

  • proving in court that a deceased person’s will is valid (usually a routine matter)
  • identifying and inventorying the deceased person’s property
  • having the property appraised paying debts and taxes, and
  • distributing the remaining property as the will (or state law, if there’s no will) directs.

If they died without a Will, then the property will be distributed according to Missouri law regarding intestacy (dying without a Will).

What Does a Kansas City Probate Attorney Do?

A Kansas City Probate Attorney will encourage a family to have a will to ensure that all assets will pass to the heirs quickly and efficiently. A will expresses the clear wishes for the disposition of assets after the passing of a loved one. Inter-family disputes over assets are some of the most stressful events for a family. Drawing up a will with a probate attorney is one of the most loving things you can do for your family.

Are There Estate or Inheritance Taxes in Missouri?

Missouri residents do not need to worry about a state estate or inheritance tax. Missouri does not have these kinds of taxes, which some states levy on people who either owned property in the state where they lived (estate tax) or who inherit property from someone who lived there (inheritance tax).
