What to do when a person dies
People frequently ask what they should do when a loved one
passes. Unfortunately, they usually ask this question from the midst of their
grief. Making appropriate plans now can ease the burden of this difficult time.
Sarah Rieger of the Spokane
Spokesman-Review recently wrote a quick guide to post-mortem decision
making, particularly applicable for those instances when the estate will
require a probate court proceeding. Estates that have been appropriately
planned to avoid probate may be handled differently.
In any case, the first
step is the most important: notify the decedent’s attorney. If the estate has
been properly planned, the attorney should be able to guide you through the
process and minimize both the time and the emotional stress involved.
