COLLECTION AND MANAGEMENT OF ASSETS

Once the court has approved the probate petition, it is the client's job to find, define and secure all the assets of the deceased. This is generally conducted at the decedent's house where securities, jewelry, deeds to real property, bank statements and other valuable assets are generally found. Once the assets are determined, an inventory is completed and the Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. will have the assets appraised by a court appointed appraiser after which time they then may be sold.

There are some assets that avoid the probate process such as life insurance, joint tenancy property and revocable trusts. The Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. will guide you through the process of attaining those assets as well as the ones included in the probate estate.

Once the assets are identified, the client must make sure that there are the proper insurances in place to protect the assets while the probate procedure is completed. The Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. will advise on the proper insurance and amounts as well as provide the names of competent insurance agents that handle these types of matters. It sounds like a lot of work which it is but with the expertise of the Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. it is completed in an efficient and painless manner.

Depending on the number of heirs to the estate or the asset mixture, many estates liquidate or sell off all the assets so that each heir receives cash. It is also possible to preserve real property and distribute the actual real estate at the conclusion of the probate case. It all depends on the unique situation of each case. Mr. Cohen will spend extensive time with you to make sure that the best and most economical decision is made. Should it become necessary to sell some or all of the estate's property, Mr. Cohen will navigate the many technical rules that must be followed to complete a sale. The Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. will also provide names of professionals to assist in the sales making the process proceed smoothly.
