Estate administrators have a tough job

| Mar 9, 2018 | Estate Administration

Your loved one’s estate might be a big responsibility for you after that person passes away. This is especially true if you are the administrator over their estate. This position requires that you handle quite a few duties. Unfortunately, these come at a time when you are likely still mourning your loss.

One of the important duties of the estate administrator is to handle the financial aspects of the estate. This includes paying certain bills and filing tax returns. These matters can have a big impact on what the heirs walk away with when the probate matters are all settled. We can help you make sure that you are handling these financial points in the way they are required to be handled by law.

Another duty that you will have to handle is finding heirs and assets so that you can get everything distributed. This might be simple if your family is close knit and you know where everyone is. If your loved one kept good records, it might be easy to find the assets. When these aren’t what’s going on, you might have to do some hunting.

We can help you find out what options you have for finding assets and heirs. We can also assist you in learning about other duties you have as the estate administrator. The important thing here is to make sure that you are doing things in accordance with the law and that you are representing the interests of the estate.

As you work on the estate, you might have questions come up. We will help you find answers and work through a plan to get all matters resolved.
