How to Hire Minnesota Probate Attorney
by Chris Tymchuck, Minnesota probate attorney
Unique Estate Law probate attorney Chris Tymchuck can represent personal representatives in every county in Minnesota. Almost always we avoid actually going to the probate court by filing documents electronically. It would be unusual for us to have to actually go to court in an uncontested Minnesota probate. Even if a court hearing is scheduled, most of the time we can participate over the phone without having to travel to the court for the hearing.
We routinely do simple uncontested Minnesota probates throughout Minnesota for $2,000 – $3,500. If an attorney gives you a probate fee quote for an uncontested probate much higher than $2,500 be careful. Ask the lawyer to explain why he or she charges so much when we do it for much less?
We make it very easy to hire the probate law firm of Unique Estate Law to represent a personal representative in a Minnesota probate. Just follow these simple steps:
- Get answers to all of your probate questions. Call Minnesota probate attorney Chris Tymchuck (952-955-7623) if you have any questions about Minnesota probates.
- Sign our Probate Engagement Agreement: Complete our online engagement agreement, print the document then have the prospective personal representative sign it and mail it to Unique Estate Law, 3800 American Blvd West, Suite 1500, Bloomington, MN 55431.
- Send a check payable to Unique Estate Law, for $2,500 to Unique Estate Law at he same address.
When we get your signed Probate Engagement Agreement and check the following will occur:
- Unique Estate Law will contact the prospective personal representative to arrange to get the Will with the original signature of the deceased (if there is a Will) and answer any questions.
- We will prepare the petition to open the probate and get the prospective personal representative appointed as the actual personal representative. We are usually able to open the probate and get the personal representative appointed about one week after we get a signed Probate Engagement Agreement and the $2,500 security deposit.
- We will explain what the personal representative must do to satisfy the personal representative’s legal obligations.
- We will prepare and complete all notices of appointment of the personal representative and other notices with respect to creditors as are required by the laws of Minnesota and the rules of the Minnesota probate court.
- We will assist the personal representative in preparing a complete inventory of all assets of any kind or nature that are subject to probate, and any nonprobate assets such as life insurance, retirement benefits, and other assets.
- We will counsel and advise on any related questions or matters arising out of the administration of the Estate.
