After a death, there are many legal details to hammer out. While it is not necessary to get a lawyer, it is strongly recommended. A lawyer will make sure all the ‘t’s are crossed and ‘i’s are dotted. 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. In order to make sure there is still peace in the family, it is a good idea to let a lawyer figure things out.
Before getting in touch with a lawyer, there are several important documents that you need to gather. These include:
- Bank Statements
- Insurance Policies
- Vehicle and Boat titles
- Tax Documents
