Probate and Trust Administration Services
Probate generally refers to the administering of a deceased person’s will or the estate of a deceased person without a will.
If you are named as the executor in the will, the court may appoint you to administer the process of collecting the assets of the deceased person, paying any liabilities remaining on the person’s estate, and finally distributing the assets of the estate to beneficiaries named in the will or determined as such by the executor.
If the decedent did not have a will, then the court will appoint an administrator to perform many of the same functions, such as gathering assets and identifying the creditors of the decedent’s estate. The executor (or administrator) will assist the attorney in identifying the decedent’s assets, creditors, and family members who will receive a notice of the probate proceeding.
