Estate Administration & Probate

Parry & Parry, P.C., will continue supporting you and your family by ensuring that your will, trust, and other assets are carried out and distributed according to your wishes. Known as probate, this process includes:

  • Validating a deceased person’s will

  • Identifying and inventorying their property

  • Appraising the decedent’s property and assets

  • Paying their debts and taxes

  • Distributing the remaining property as the will (or pursuant to state law if the decedent dies without a will) directs


Our lawyers will also mentor the legal representatives and beneficiaries of an estate on how to settle the final affairs of the deceased person.

Wills & Trusts FAQs

  • What if I don’t have a will?
    If you pass away without a will, your estate will be distributed to your next of kin, according to state law. The state will also appoint an administrator for you. This process is often much more involved and costly, putting an additional burden on surviving family members.
  • What if I have minor children but did not create a will?
    Another crucial aspect of estate planning is the guardianship of minor children. Without a will selecting a guardian, family disputes could put young kids in the middle—or the state could choose a guardian.
  • What is the difference between a will and a trust?
    Simply put, a will is a legal document specifying who will receive your assets and property upon your death. A trust is a legal agreement in which you (the “grantor”) choose another individual (the “trustee”) to manage and distribute your assets to the trust’s beneficiaries. Trusts bypass probate and protect your assets if you are incapacitated while still alive.
  • My family member just passed away, and I am a beneficiary. What do I do?
    Our attorneys can guide you through this process. We will represent you and meet with the executor of the estate to ensure you understand your rights and interests.
