Why Hire a Lawyer for Probate and Estate Administration
After burying a loved one, the last thing a grieving family needs is to deal with the stressful and complex probate process. Whether the decedent had a will or died intestate, to properly close the estate and distribute the assets to family members and other beneficiaries may require court-supervised probate and estate administration proceedings. Once appointed by the court, the executor (or executrix) has many responsibilities:
Ensure that the wishes of the decedent are carried out
Prepare estate accounting and complete required tax filings
Transfer the assets and distribute the estate to the beneficiaries
The executor has a duty to appropriately administer and account for the estate, which includes notifying the decedent’s heirs and beneficiaries, collecting and liquidating estate assets, paying taxes and debts. Fulfilling these requirements often takes significant time, effort, and knowledge of law.
