Malachi S. May 30, 2022
Fantastic and Quick Lawyer I retained Mr. Changose on a claim to the small estate for one of my friends that unexpectedly passed away and had no family that wanted to deal with his affairs. I took on the responsibility of taking care of my friends funeral arrangements and distributing his things amongst his very few close friends. My friend and I during his life decided I would be the one to take care of his affairs but we never drew any legal paperwork up before his passing. That’s where Mr. Changose steps in. I called his firm and talked to him briefly after the passing of my friend and explained the situation. He told me the easiest and cheapest way to get legal claiming as executor. We waited 45 days as required by law and on the 45th day he sent me paperwork to fill out and I sent it back within the hour and he had me everything I needed by that same evening. Super quick and super efficient ! He’s made the process of finally finishing up with my friends affairs an easy process which is what I think many of us hope for when a loved one passes. I definitely recommend him 10/10. I will be using his services in the future if the opportunity arises.

Readily Available and Trustworthy Changose helped in handling the probate for the passing of an immediate family member. Changose walked us through the entire process and was always available for questions/guidance. Fees were reasonable and service was above par. Would recommend Changose to anyone.

2 Questions Answered
Q. Why would it take months for probate to b over?deceased had filed bankruptcy
A: Hello,

Generally settling an estate takes at least six months. Mostly it takes this long, even if not much else is happening, because anyone who has a claim against the estate has six months to make a claim, after which all claims are barred.

You will probably want to talk with an attorney to get answers specific to your questions.

Good luck!
Q. My husband died he lived in Co. We had been separated for 30 yrs but never devorced also have 3 children together. His
A: Hello,

Sorry you're having such a hard time. In Arkansas you have five years after a person dies to settle the estate.

You should contact a lawyer because you have described a couple issues that will need to be taken care of with precision.

Good luck!
