Frequent Questions...

What is the role of an attorney in the closing process in Massachusetts?

In Massachusetts, attorneys play an indispensable role in the closing process of a property transaction. They meticulously review all contracts, manage the transfer of funds, and ensure that every step of the process is legal and in your best interest.

Do I need a probate in Massachusetts? What is the difference between formal and informal probate?

The need for a probate depends on several factors, such as the type and value of assets left by the deceased. Probate can be formal or informal, with formal probate typically involving more complex estates and requiring more court involvement.

How long will the probate process take with a Massachusetts attorney?

The duration of the probate process can greatly vary depending on the complexity of the estate, but it generally ranges from a few months to over a year.

What role does a real estate attorney in Massachusetts play in the probate process?

In the probate process, a real estate attorney assists in dealing with the deceased's property and ensures the estate is distributed as per the will or state law. At DaCruz Law, we guide you through both formal and informal probate processes, helping to make the process less stressful during a difficult time.

Who will be the executor of the estate?

The executor of an estate is usually named in the deceased's will. If there is no will, or if the named executor is unable or unwilling to serve, the court will appoint an executor.

Will different amounts of assets incur different taxes from the state?

Yes, the amount of assets can influence the estate tax. In Massachusetts, estates exceeding a certain value are subject to estate tax. At DaCruz Law, we can guide you through the intricacies of estate tax planning to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes.
