One of the dramatic moments in television or the movies is the meeting the family has after a loved one passes away to discuss the will. The probate attorney reads the will, people react in shock, and the storyline is progressed. In real life, however, probate is often a much more complicated matter.

It is true that a thorough will has the ability to limit the amount of probate that a family must endure after a loved one passes away. Without an effective will, probate may include:
Some tasks are required even when a thorough will is in place. Creditors, for example, have up to 4 months in the State of Tennessee to file a claim against a will. A Clarksville attorney who specializes in probate law can help to close the estate after this period of time, work through challenges made should a will not be in place, and streamline the process for the will’s executioner.
A determination of the actual value of the assets that an estate has must also be made. This process can also be quite tedious because it may include real estate, investments, liquid cash assets, and securities. This value must be determined before an estate can effectively proceed and locating these assets is not always as easy as it may seem. A Clarksville attorney can greatly assist with this process to save a family time and money.
