Dying Without a Will

Dying Without a Will in Massachusetts

What to Do When Someone Dies Without a Will

Unfortunately, some people die without ever signing a will or creating an estate plan. In these cases, an heir needs to file for an estate administration with the Probate Court. The estate administration petition names an administrator of the deceased person's estate, the identity of heirs, and addresses certain other preliminary questions. These are determined by a state's laws of intestacy. We have represented and advised administrators as well as people who inherited when there was no will.

Being an administrator is a big responsibility; there are many important tasks you assume and liabilities which you may become exposed to while you serve. That is why it is so important that you have the probate administration attorneys at Percy Law Group, PC,on your side. Call our firm today to arrange an initial consultation regarding your particular estate administration needs, including a discussion of how best to protect yourself throughout this process.

Effective and Experienced Probate Attorneys Serving the Taunton Area

We frequently represent administrators of estates dealing with loved ones who died without a will. Their job is just as important and difficult as an personal representative under a will. They get appointed, marshal the assets, pay debts and taxes, and make sure that the people who are supposed to get the money, get it. In fact, their job can be more difficult as dying without a will means the deceased left no written instructions to follow. That means the administrator is often left with the difficult task of deciding who gets what. We know that acting as an administrator is often an emotional and difficult task; uncooperative family members and other heirs can make the process that much more challenging for you.

We offer compassionate, personalized services that focus on quickly and efficiently moving you through the estate administration process. Our decades of experience allow us to help you overcome obstacles you almost certainly will encounter in this process. Contact our experienced estate administration team for sound advice on your particular estate administration needs. We can provide a comprehensive review of your options, advise you on the best course of action, and faithfully represent the estate throughout the process.
