The process of estate administration involves settling a loved one’s estate, whether in the form of real estate, money stocks, or personal belongings, after they die. It also involves paying any outstanding debts or taxes and distributing assets to those that inherit them according to the provisions set out in the will.
Do I Need An Estate Administration Attorney?
When a loved one dies, it’s important to have a lawyer you can trust as you move through estate administration, especially if there are disagreements (or potential disagreements) regarding the terms of the will or its execution. These disputes can lead to lengthy and complicated legal challenges.
Your attorney can help you better understand and act on your legal obligations in this new and sometimes overwhelming role. An experienced lawyer can help you fulfill the duties of an estate administrator while protecting your rights, defending against potential litigation, and preserving the interests of your deceased loved one.
While every case is unique and laws vary by state, if you’ve been designated to administer an estate or know someone who has, the right lawyer can make the entire procedure easier than you might imagine.
With proper planning and appropriate legal counsel, you can take steps toward avoiding potentially costly legal issues. Seeking this sort of support, especially when emotions run high, can help prevent legal or personal questions conflicts with your loved ones and other beneficiaries that could have lasting consequences beyond the estate administration itself.
