Probate, Trust and Estate Administration

An estate is the real and personal property a person possesses at death. When a person dies, all of his property like real estate, money, investments, and insurance become a part the estate. Estate administration is a process of collecting and managing the estate. It includes paying any debts and taxes, and distributing the remaining property as per the will. A Will actually decides the heirs of an estate. Contact us today for any help.

Estate Administration

Each state has its own probate laws which govern the process of administration. Generally, the state in which the person lived in at the time of death is where the estate goes through probate. However if the real estate or some property is present in another state, then it may need to probate under the laws of that state also. Therefore several states have adopted a version of the Uniform Probate Code to make uniformity of the laws across the states. Talk to our attorney for any help in Will, estate or trust.
