PROBATE ADMINISTRATION, GUARDIANSHIP AND CONVERVATORSHIP
One of the greatest consolations upon the loss of a family member or dear friend is reassurance that you are not alone in carrying out the final wishes of a loved one. At Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLP, we provide comprehensive guidance, assistance and probate expertise to guide you through the probate process. Knowledge of probate law is essential to this process to ensure that the deceased’s assets are distributed correctly. Rhode Island law is distinctive, and probate practices and procedures vary greatly, so thorough experience and understanding are necessary. Our services include:
·Representing executors and heirs in probate courts statewide
·Collecting, valuing, selling, and distributing assets and continuing businesses
·Guidance in preparing necessary federal and state tax returns
·Settling creditors’ claims
·Ancillary Probate's in other states
Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLP also provides comprehensive services for guardianships and conservatorships when loved ones are no longer able to handle their own affairs. Guardianships grant legal rights to individuals to assume responsibility for the food, health care, housing, and other necessities of a person deemed fully or partially incapable of providing these necessities for themselves. Conservatorships limit such responsibilities to such person’s assets and finances.
