After a death, there are many legal details to figure out. While it is not necessary to get a lawyer, it is strongly recommended. The time following a death of a loved one is extremely emotional, and even the closest family will have disagreements over the most trivial matters.
Before getting in touch with a lawyer there are several important documents that you need to gather. Those include:
- Wills - if one doesn't exists we encourage most people to have one created
- Bank Statements
- Insurance Policies
- Vehicle and Boat titles
- Tax Documents
