Estate Administration

Administering an estate refers to the process which occurs when an individual’s property must be transferred and distributed after his or her death with the assistance of a Probate Court.  Many assets pass to other people upon death without court oversight, such as assets held by a trust, real estate owned with a joint tenant with rights of survivorship, jointly held bank accounts, bank accounts held in trust for (ITF) or pay or transfer on death (POD or TOD), or life insurance and 401K’s that have either a beneficiary designation or designations.  However, if an individual dies owning property in his or her own name, probate administration will be necessary whether the individual died without a will (intestate) or having a will (testate).  Our office is able to assist executors, administrators and families in navigating the rules of the probate process.
