As a general rule, the administration of an estate or trust requires the fiduciary, either personal representative or trustee, to address certain routine issues and follow several standard steps to distribute or manage assets in accordance with the wishes. Assets need to be gathered, business affairs settled, debts paid, necessary tax returns filed, assets distributed as the deceased individual directed, and lastly, close the estate.
For most people, probate of the estate of a friend or family member is a simple task if they are provided with clear and uncomplicated advice. While you can get through simple probate alone, experience has proven that the assistance of a qualified probate lawyer makes the process quicker and less expensive.
