Wills & Probate Attorney | Guam

When a loved one passes away, dealing with the legal system should be the last thing on your mind.

The probate process is how the court distributes the estate or property of a person who has passed away.  If the deceased has a will, an executor makes sure that the terms of the will are carried out.  If the deceased does not have a will, or passes away intestate, an administrator is appointed and the estate is distributed according to Guam law.  The probate process requires that notice be given to heirs as well as creditors at various times.

When you are ready, I will guide you through every step of the probate process.

I will also help you plan your estate now to make it easier for your loved ones later.  The goal of any estate plan is actually to avoid having property go through the probate process.  I can help you draft a will and develop an estate plan so that your assets go to who you want them to go to, instead of being left to the system set up under Guam law.

Some services that I provide are:

  • Simple wills
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Guardianships
