After the death of a loved one, there are many legal details that need to be sorted out. You may be wondering whether you need a lawyer. You may need to locate certain legal documents before the arrangements are made. And what about the estate and the will? Let us help you clear up any confusion you may be feeling.

Do I Need a Lawyer?
Lawyers are society's professional problem solvers, and when you have estate issues to deal with, there's no doubt an experienced attorney can help you navigate the legalities of dying. Here's how.
Important Documents
Certainly, no one expects the death of a family member to involve so much paperwork and documentation. But the reality is, you're going to need to locate copies of different documents, including insurance and tax forms, wills, banking records, and deeds. Learn more here.
Death Certificates
The death certificate, the permanent record of the fact of death, is perhaps the single most important document you'll need in the coming weeks. Learn how we can help you obtain certified copies.
Accounts & Deposit Boxes
Dealing with practicalities after a family member's passing can involve the closing or reassignment of bank accounts and safety deposit boxes, as well as the deposit of insurance benefit or reimbursement checks. Read this if you need information on common banking procedures and requirements.
Executors
What is an executor? What are his or her responsibilities? Learn everything you need to know about appointing an executor; including why you need one, who can serve as executor, his or her right of refusal, and guidelines for financial compensation for services rendered.
Information About Wills
A will is a valuable document, but it only goes so far in protecting an estate. If you're curious about how a will can't be used; or need answers to questions like "What makes a will legal?" we invite you to read this page.
Probate
Probate is usually the last thing anyone wants to think about when a family member dies. But, if you've recently experienced the passing of a loved one, it's something you'll need to handle. Take time to learn what you need to know about probate.
Notify Creditors
There are so many social connections you will need to notify of the death of your loved one. What should be your top priority? Follow our guidelines and 4-step notification process.
