Estate Administration

Estate Administration

When a loved one passes away, his or her assets often need to be accounted for and distributed through a court-managed process. If there is a will, it is usually offered to the court for probate by an individual named in the will as the executor. If there is no will, a close relative, typically a spouse or a child, petitions the court to be appointed as the administrator of the estate.
