The Estate Planning Process
Estate planning begins with an in-depth look at your assets and objectives, followed by the preparation of legal documents to direct the disposition of your estate following your death. The development of your estate plan will involve several discussions between you and our attorneys to ensure your goals are implemented and met. We pride ourselves on taking the time and care to meet with our clients to thoroughly understand their needs.
The attorneys at Currier & Trask, P.A. have experience probating estates and representing parties in contested probate cases, filing for Guardianship or Conservatorship of an adult or minor, and assisting with an adoption.
Probating an estate is the court-supervised process of locating and determining the value of the assets owned by a deceased individual, the “Decedent” and disbursing those assets according to the decedent’s will and Maine laws. The probate process can be an intimidating experience especially as it often occurs during the difficult time of losing a loved one. We strive to provide knowledgeable guidance to lessen the concerns and frustration during this process.
