Setting Up an Affidavit of Heirship in Arlington

Posted by Lee StringhamJan 29, 20160 Comments

Have you already protected your family from instability? By that, we mean: Have you drafted your will yet?

It is understandably not something that is at the top of everyone's to-do list. How often do we want to think about our own mortality and what will happen once we are gone? Not often, we understand. However, the time is never better than now to prevent your family from one day having to face the sometimes lengthy and costly process of formalizing an affidavit of heirship. Sure, we all don't want to die, but we know we eventually will. What is sure even more scary is the thought that in your death, more stress than that of your loved ones missing you might befall them.

When someone dies without leaving a will, the inheritance is then assigned to the heir or heirs apparent of the person who has passed on. There are specific rules as to how to go to court and formally declare who the heir apparent may be, which is why hiring a probate lawyer is so advantageous should you need to go through this process. Hixson Law Firm has helped many families navigate through this lengthy, and sometimes contentious, process to resolve the issue of who is the rightful heir to the belongings of the deceased.
