Probate With A Will

If a loved one passes away with a Will, the Will is evidence in the Probate proceeding.  The Will guides the Court on the naming of the Personal Representative (the person managing the estate) and the distribution of the estate assets. Read more about this process.

Probate Without A Will

If a loved one passes away without a Will, the court will follow Intestate Succession Laws to determine property distribution. Unfortunately, this may not align with their actual wishes, emphasizing the importance of having an Estate Plan in place.

Nebraska Inheritance Tax

The Federal Estate Tax is assessed on the total value of the decedent’s estate. Additionally, Nebraska imposes an Inheritance Tax on the value of the inheritance received by each beneficiary. We can guide you through this process.  Read more about Nebraska Inheritance Tax HERE.
