Probate Estates

Probate courts in the State of Indiana settle the estates of deceased residents. Our Goshen probate estates services provide the guidance to lead you and your surviving family members through the intricate legal system.  Our probate services involve identifying and listing the personal owned property of the deceased and then seeing that the property is distributed in accordance with the instructions stated in the will.

Loraine P. Troyer’s probate services also include a review of the debts to ensure that all appropriate creditors and taxes are paid. A will does simplify the process of settlement but it still requires that the assets pass through the probate court. The process is generally overseen by an executor — if there is a will — or by a court-selected representative if your family member dies without a will, also known as intestate.

Guardianship

A guardianship is a legal right given to a person to be responsible for the food, health care, housing and other necessities of a person deemed fully or partially incapable of managing these self preserving provisions. Under most conditions, when a person requires a legal guardian, the person's incapacity will likely impair his or her own ability to manage their financial matters. Petitions for guardianship are often brought at the same time as petitions for conservatorship.

Conservatorship

A conservatorship is a legal right given to a person to be responsible for the assets and finances of a person deemed fully or partially incapable of providing these necessities for him or herself. Usually, a conservatorship is important as it protects the finances of the incapacitated party and ensures that their assets are allocated appropriately. If an individual becomes unable to rationally make sound financial decisions, they could suffer legal and financial hardships
