I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
When the 100% owner of a corporation, or an LLC, dies, the estate of the deceased then owns the corporation and probate must be opened by a court filing so that an Administrator of the Estate can be appointed by the court to take over the handling of the corporation. Whether the corporation is to be continued---because it is an operational business, or the corporation needs to be wound down and dissolved under the laws of the state of incorporation, someone with legal authority to operate the corporation must step in. And that can only be done by a legal representative of the estate.
So, if probate has not yet been filed for this deceased, it will need to be done so that the corporation can be dealt with. A local probate attorney will be able to assist you with the probate filing and a corporation attorney will be able to guide you through the dissolution process if the corporation is to be dissolved as opposed to being sold to a buyer, or continued on by the Estate and then the heirs of the deceased.
You may reply back to me again if you have additional questions, and I will continue to assist you.
