Working with Your Family to Settle a Loved One’s Estate

Probate refers to the court process that a family must go through when their loved one passes away with a will or with no estate plan at all. The probate process will render the will effective upon its completion, and the heirs will then be allowed to benefit from its terms and wishes.

To learn more about this process, contact our Williamsburg probate attorneys at Johnson, Gasink & Baxter, LLP. We strive to communicate with you in terms that are easy to understand so you always know your legal options.

How Long Does Probate Take? How Much Does it Cost?

As with all court actions, the length and cost of each case varies. Probates in Virginia typically last from six month to three years. While Virginia estates can incur 3-5% in executor and administration fees, JGB bills the estate a flat fee so the family understands their cost up front and can keep their inheritance in their family.

At Johnson, Gasink, & Baxter, LLP we can help guide you through the intricacies of probate so that you can focus your energy on helping your family. This includes:

  • Admitting the will to probate
  • Assistance to out of state resident agents
  • Notifying the heirs and file an affidavit of notices with the court
  • Filing an inventory with the Commissioner of Accounts which states the exact value of all assets on the date of death
  • Filing an accounting which shows the Commissioner of Accounts exactly what has happened to each and every cent of every asset in the estate
  • Continuing to file accountings until you have paid all debts, satisfied all claims, and distributed all assets
