What do I need to do after someone dies?

If you’re reading this because a family or loved one has died, many condolences. Jana McCreary has been through the process and understands many of the challenges you might be facing.

If you are the person closest to the decedent, you will want to secure the person’s property and look for important documents such as a will, life insurance policies, and burial contracts. You’ll order death certificates from the funeral home or crematorium that handles burial or cremation.

Jana can meet with clients early in the process, but not much in the legal process can be done without a death certificate. In the meantime, tend to your family as you honor your loved one’s memory.
