Administering the Estate and Asset Distribution
The person named in the estate documents, the executor or administrator, is tasked with seeing that the estate is administered properly. Our firm is here to support executors and administrators, who are often family members with no experience handling estates. We guide clients through the processes of:
- Assessing the estate assets
- Gathering assets to be distributed
- Paying any debts of the estate
- Distributing the remaining assets according to the wishes of the deceased
If an individual dies intestate, meaning that there was no official will in place, the court takes over and probates the estate. Our firm can work on your behalf or on behalf of your family to ensure that the court processes go according to the law. It is better to have a valid will than to allow the courts to handle the administration of the estate, but we are here to help you understand how the courts handle the estate and what it means for you.
