Trust and Estate Administration Attorneys in Central Ohio
After a loved one passes away, it is important that his or her wishes are carried out as they were intended.

Probate of Estate and Trust Termination
The process of probate can be frustrating because it is very detail oriented, with much paperwork and many opportunities for conflict. In probate court, every judge and every situation are different and each case takes flexibility and a thorough understanding of the desires of the decedent and the law in the State of Ohio. At Schulze, Howard & Cox, we can help you protect your rights in probate. We can help you pay creditor's claims and any taxes that are owed on the estate. We can also fight for your rights in probate litigation.
The termination of a trust is also a process that benefits from legal advice to ensure that the administration of the trust is in compliance with its own terms and with Ohio laws. Our firm can help you ensure that all of these responsibilities are met, including the notification of beneficiaries, the gathering and disbursal of assets and the preparation of tax returns and other documents. We will often work with accountants and other financial advisors to resolve these issues properly. We can also assist estate administrators with guardianships and other related matters.
