Losing a loved one is hard. The days and weeks after a loss are often fraught with grief, questions, and, unfortunately, family complications. It’s a terrible time to try to think through a legal process clearly. And while the North Carolina General Statutes are the guiding law about what happens to an Estate upon the death of a North Carolina resident, they are not exactly casual reading material. The law is made to address the variety of unique situations that may come up. It can be confusing, long-winded, and it might even seem like it’s written in another language. The Estate Administration team at Carolina Family Estate Planning is here to make the Probate and Estate Administration process easier.
