You Can’t Afford the Wrong Probate Attorney

  • It’s a complicated process that can leave you feeling overwhelmed and lost. But don’t make the mistake of entrusting your loved one’s estate to just any attorney. You need someone who has gone above and beyond in their experience with probate matters.
  • Because it is complex, many probate attorneys seem to stretch out what should take 8 – 10 months into years.
  • It’s hard to describe the frustration and disappointment you feel when you’re dealing with a probate lawyer who just doesn’t seem to care. Losing a loved one is already a painful experience, but to be left in the dark about the legal proceedings can feel like a betrayal.

Over the years, we have engaged attorneys to help navigate the legal process for various reasons. In the last three years, we have had to engage estate attorneys in two different states to assist with probate matters. Not being from Arkansas, we didn't know of any attorneys and were given a referral to Gary DeWitt. Wow! What a different experience for us. Gary is punctual, friendly, responsive, family-oriented, kind-hearted, and very knowledgeable. We are forever grateful for the referral to his law firm. From our view, when we have a legal question, we want answers as soon as possible, but most attorneys get to you when they can. Gary, however, makes you feel as if you are the only client he has - although we know this not to be the case. He truly does respond quickly to questions and goes - in my mind - above and beyond. It was over the holidays when I needed a letter to move things along with an insurance company. Gary was out of the office, but still replied and was able to assist us with the letter. No, I didn't really expect him to meet my timeline, but we were certainly grateful he went above expectations to get this letter to us! If you have any doubts about engaging Gary's firm, please don't. You will be happy working with him! Go meet with him. You will see for yourself he was made from a unique mold. I have not experienced an attorney like him in all my years! This is not a paid review. Just a review to motivate others like me to pick a good attorney!

Rogers Arkansas Probate

Rogers Probate is a legal process that involves the administration of a deceased person’s estate. The process can be complex and time-consuming, and it involves a range of legal and financial issues. In Rogers, Arkansas, the probate process is governed by state law, and it is important to understand the process and your legal rights and obligations. This article will provide you with a guide to probate in Rogers, Arkansas.

What is Probate in Rogers?

Probate is the legal process by which a deceased person’s estate is settled. This process involves the distribution of the decedent’s assets to his or her heirs or beneficiaries. The process also involves the payment of any outstanding debts and taxes owed by the estate. In Arkansas, the probate process is overseen by the probate court, which is a division of the circuit court in each county.

The Probate Process in Rogers, Arkansas

The probate process in Rogers, Arkansas, typically involves the following steps:

Step 1: Filing the Petition

The first step in the probate process is to file a petition with the probate court. The petition must include information about the decedent, the decedent’s heirs or beneficiaries, and the assets and debts of the estate.

Step 2: Appointment of Personal Representative

Once the petition is filed, the court will appoint a personal representative or executor to manage the estate. The personal representative is responsible for gathering the decedent’s assets, paying outstanding debts and taxes, and distributing the remaining assets to the heirs or beneficiaries.

Step 3: Inventory and Appraisal

The personal representative must prepare an inventory and appraisal of the decedent’s assets. This includes identifying and valuing all assets, such as real estate, bank accounts, investments, and personal property.

Step 4: Notice to Creditors and Payment of Debts

The personal representative must give notice to creditors of the probate proceeding and must pay any outstanding debts owed by the estate.

Step 5: Distribution of Assets

Once all debts and taxes have been paid, the personal representative must distribute the remaining assets to the heirs or beneficiaries according to the decedent’s will or the laws of intestacy if there is no will.

Challenges to the Rogers Probate Process

There are several challenges that can arise during the probate process in Rogers, Arkansas. These include:

Contested Wills

A contested will is a will that is challenged by one or more heirs or beneficiaries. This can lead to a lengthy court battle and can delay the distribution of assets.

Creditor Claims

Creditors may file claims against the estate for outstanding debts. These claims must be resolved before the assets can be distributed to the heirs or beneficiaries.

Tax Issues

The personal representative must file any necessary tax returns and pay any outstanding taxes owed by the estate.
