Probate Law

Probate Law Allows Grief To Happen More Naturally. Professional guidance to the survivors of loved ones can be comforting in a time of grief. Letting a probate lawyer take care of the legalities that appear when a loved one passes away takes away some of the stress, and allows your body to grieve in a more natural way. Jennifer Bergert Attorney at Law has been helping people through the grieving process by assisting them with their probate law needs for 15 years.

What is probate law?

The granting of probate is the first step in the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distributing the deceased persons property under a will, or state law if there is no will available.

A good probate lawyer will be understanding of your individual needs during this tragic time in your life.

Jennifer Bergert understands that you have enough to worry about, and wants to take some of that weight off of your shoulders and allow you to grieve at your own pace and in your own time.

After a death of a loved one has occurred, she will walk you through the probate process every step of the way. Here’s what you can expect.

  • Proof in court that the deceased persons will is valid
  • Identify and inventory your loved ones property
  • Have property appraised
  • Pay off debts and taxes of the deceased
  • Distribute remaining property as the will or state law directs

In addition, she will file any paperwork that is needed and attend any necessary court appearances either with you or on your behalf. If you are in need of a probate lawyer in the North Canton or surrounding Stark or Summit County Ohio areas, contact Jennifer Bergert.
