Help with Planning Your Affairs
When you work with an attorney to prepare your own wills and simple trusts, you are giving your loved ones a valuable gift. Documenting your wishes in formal, legal documents now can make the process of administering your estate easier and less stressful on your personal representative/executor, when the time comes.
New Haven attorney Kirsten Mendillo helps residents across CT put their own wishes and goals in writing, ensuring wills and trusts follow the required legal formalities.
Assistance with Estate Administration
In many cases, when a CT resident or someone who owned real estate or other property in CT dies, their estate needs to go through a probate court proceeding. This process involves the court officially appointing someone to manage the deceased person’s estate, and to distribute assets according to the decedent’s wishes as spelled out in their will, or according to CT law, if no valid will was found.
The probate court process can be time-consuming and labor-intensive. Attorney Kirsten Mendillo provides professional, legal representation and estate work, helping with the administrative paperwork that is involved, and ensuring the personal representative/executor has the support they need to understand and tackle each step in what can otherwise be a confusing process.
