Probate Law and Estate Planning

Ensure a smoother transition for your family

When the death of a loved one occurs, ensure a smoother transition for your family. Losing a loved one is difficult enough without getting bogged down in legal technicalities and requirements, so let the Volsky Law Inc. deal with the law for you.

When you have lost a loved one, the last thing you need or want is to be burdened with complex Probate legal issues. You can trust Volsky Law Inc. to handle your Probate matters in either in Cleveland or Cincinnati Ohio.

There can be innumerable questions and concerns when someone in your family passes away, whether or not there is a will or trust. It is understandable that you wouldn't feel equipped to handle such a situation all on your own. Count on our more than 30 years of experience to handle all of these issues for you.

First, we will determine whether or not a will exists and if probate is even necessary. Ohio probate law states that wills should be filed with the deceased person's county Probate court of residence within 30 days of death. Depending on the situation, we may or may not need to have an Estate probated at all. Generally, probate is only needed if there is no will and Ohio Intestate law will govern distribution.

We are highly experienced and capable when it comes to the many issues which can and do arise, including debt settlement, family disputes and the proper transfer and distribution of the deceased person’s assets, including real estate.

Estate Litigation

The costs of family disputes are both financial and emotional. Issues such as allegations of undue influence over the deceased person during the last years of his or her life, the competency of a deceased person to change his or her bequests in the final years of life, the validity or invalidity of wills, and the wasting of assets during the deceased person’s life can cause tremendous in-fighting among family members and others. Such disputes can also significantly delay the closing of a probate Estate and asset distribution. The sooner these issues can be resolved favorably the better, and our job is to facilitate this process efficiently and provide you with sound legal advice about your rights and obligations as an heir, executor or beneficiary.

Clearing Title to Real Property

If you have a title issue that might impact someone's estate, Volsky Law can assist in clearing the title and resolving other relevant disputes.

​Improper title transfer can lead to trouble after someone has died. This can happen if an original heir dies before clearing the title left to them by a parent or grandparent. Other problems happen when someone who is not a legal beneficiary is living in the house of the deceased person. All of this and more can be addressed by our office.
