Get Help With Estate Administration

Losing a loved one is never easy. Add to that the stress and confusion of estate matters, and you may soon be in way over your head. How, for example, do you go about the probate process? How do you validate the will and transfer property? What if your loved one didn't even have a will?

Fortunately, you don't have to face these complicated issues alone. You can turn to Roberts, Marcilliat & Mills for guidance on all aspects of estate administration in North Carolina. Our lawyers can answer your questions and help you through the process, whether you're an executor charged with handling your loved one's affairs, a beneficiary seeking guidance on the law, or someone else with a claim on the estate.

We can assist you with:

  • Navigating the probate process
  • Pursuing small estate administration for straightforward estates under a certain amount
  • Handling trust administration
  • Ensuring that you fulfill your legal obligations as an executor or trustee
  • Transferring property outside of the probate process (for example, life insurance, payable-on-death accounts and retirement accounts)
  • Dealing with any business interests or succession issues

Out-Of-State Estates With Property In North Carolina

Did your loved one own a condo, vacation rental or other type of property in North Carolina? Even if they lived out of state — and if their primary probate is in their home state — the North Carolina property will likely have to go through probate here. In that case, you'll need a local attorney to handle the process (also called "ancillary proceedings"). We can help.
