Estate Administration

To many people, it is mystery what occurs after a family member or decedent passes away. While it may seem complicated to someone who has never been through the process before, estate administration is a fairly easy process when guided through it by a helpful and knowledgeable lawyer.

 

Administration begins with the filing of the will to probate. Once accepted, the executor is empowered to go about his or her duties as stated in the will. The executor is required to file reports with the probate court (this is not a difficult process) to inform the court of the value of the probate estate and how funds were disbursed.

 

Depending on the nature of the assets in the probate estate (personal property versus real property), estate administration can be completed in as little as one day and as long as a year (or more).
