probate lawyer in Topeka, Kansas
Probate Legal Services
Depending on the circumstances, probate planning can be challenging to take on alone when you have lost a loved one. In cases of intestacy, when someone passes away without a valid Will, the assignment of a guardian for minor children (if necessary) and distribution details of the estate’s assets were not predetermined. As such, the details are then left up to the probate court’s best judgement, and it can be stressful and painful for loved ones of the deceased.
