Probate

The probate process exists to carry out the wishes of a deceased person and bring their remaining affairs into order.  The court will supervise estate administration in an informal or formal probate depending on the legal issues presented after the death of an individual.  Property can pass after a death by will, trust, or even without estate planning documents.  An Omaha probate attorney can assist a client in administering an estate, asserting the client’s rights under a will or trust, and help to insure that the wishes of the individual who has passed away are followed.  Dealing with an inventory, creditors, serving notice, taxes, court filings, and distributions to heirs are all important tasks that we can assist you with at the Thompson Law Office.

Attorney Nick Halbur has addressed probate court issues for clients in Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota.  Please contact us today to speak about moving your probate matter forward.
