Legal Answers
  • Q. My father died 25 years ago without a will. I need to probate his estate now. Are newspaper notices still needed?
    A: An informal intestate administration may be possible, but I would want to know more informaton before giving you a definitive answer. I would hire an attorney to make sure it's done properly. As a title examiner, I can't tell you the number of times I've come across estates that were improperly administered and required reopening to cure the title defect. I regularly assist clients in your position and would be happy to discuss the matter with you and potentially help you out if you wanted to contact me.
