Probate

When a family member dies, people often have questions about the probate (the distribution of that person’s assets and payment of debts) of their estate.  The attorneys at Bowman & Krieger can answer those questions and walk with you through this transitional process.

If you have been named in the will of a loved one as executor or personal representative for the estate, you may be uncertain what your responsibilities will be. You want an experienced lawyer to guide you through the process, helping you complete the steps necessary to settle the estate.

If you are an heir or person named in a will, you need your questions answered and your rights protected.

We work with:

•                      Personal representatives (sometimes called executors)

•                      Heirs

•                      Devisees (persons named in the will to receive assets)

•                      Trustees

•                      Trust Beneficiaries

 

We will prepare and file all documents required by the probate court or trust administration. We will act as your advocate in all hearings or proceedings throughout the process. We will work with you to prepare and file an inventory of the assets of the estate or trust, pay all final debts and taxes of the deceased, and oversee the orderly distribution of assets in accordance with the terms of the will, Nebraska intestate law or trust.
