Astrid de Parry, Esq. – A Trusted Probate Professional
Losing a loved one is difficult, and shouldn’t be made more so by a tedious probate process. Particularly if your friend or family member did not plan for the distribution of their estate prior to death, administration of an estate through probate can be lengthy and arduous.
Astrid de Parry is a practiced and knowledgeable probate attorney practicing in the Volusia County area, including Orange City and Daytona Beach. Ms. de Parry has received numerous honors related to her probate practice, including being named an Avvo Client’s Choice attorney in the probate field in 2013, and receiving a “Superb” Avvo rating, also related to her probate practice.
Particularly if you’ve ever been the executor of a will, or seen to the affairs of a friend or family member after their death, you know how difficult the process can be. While there will always be legal steps to take in the administration of an estate (probate), this process is made much more streamlined when the deceased has taken the proper steps to make sure their affairs are in order prior to their death.
Some of the typical steps in estate planning are:
Selecting someone to act as your health care surrogate in the event you’re unable to make your own healthcare decisions
Drafting a last will and testament and in some cases, a trust
Making your funeral arrangements, and ensuring that funeral expenses are covered
If you are a business owner, making sure you designate someone to tend to your business affairs in the event of your death
Drafting a living will/advanced health care directive
The paperwork and planning that goes into preparing your affairs for the end of your life can be daunting – that’s why it’s best to take care of it long before you have to, and to trust the execution of these steps to a competent, knowledgeable estate planning attorney. Astrid de Parry has both the knowledge and experience to make sure that your end of life plans are made in an efficient and understandable manner.
