Making a will

Probate Wills FeaturedMaking a will is a task that many people put off for far longer than they should, as nobody likes to think about their own death and what will happen afterwards. However, making a will is crucial to ensure that your estate is distributed according to your wishes after your passing. Careful planning will also minimise any inheritance tax liabilities or other liabilities your loved ones may face.

Valerie Cotter & Co. Solicitors in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny, provides expert advice and personal attention to all who wish to make a will.

Valerie examines the client’s personal circumstances (e.g. marital status/number of children/property and other assets owned/etc.). She then delivers tailored professional advice according to the information gathered. An inheritance tax advisor may be consulted to ensure that tax liabilities for your loved ones are reduced or eliminated wherever possible.

Once the client considers all advice and makes their decision on how they would like their estate distributed, the will itself is drawn up with careful attention to the instructions given. A further consultation will then ensure the client is 100% happy with its contents.

Choose Valerie Cotter & Co. Solicitors for making a will in Kilkenny, and you are assured that your wishes will be followed so your loved ones will be looked after as you desire when you are gone.

Probate Solicitors Kilkenny

Probate is the legal process that follows the death of a person who has left a valid will. It deals with administering the estate of that person according to the instructions of their will, which mainly involves settling claims and distributing property.

It can be an emotional time for the bereaved people left behind, and Valerie Cotter is aware of this at all times. Compassion is a hallmark of her service when dealing with probate issues. She will sympathetically yet professionally guide the family and others through what can sometimes be a difficult and technical process.

A key part of the procedure involves the Grant of Probate, where the will is officially deemed to be valid and it is established that all financial, legal, and tax matters are in order. This is necessary before the executor or administrator may proceed to distributing the estate.

Valerie Cotter has extensive expertise and experience in this and all other aspects of the probate process. She can be counted upon at all times.
