Frequently asked questions.

What is estate administration?

Estate administration refers to the process of managing and distributing a deceased person’s assets, settling their debts, and fulfilling any legal obligations after their death. This process ensures that the decedent’s estate is distributed according to their will or, if there is no will, according to state law.

Who is responsible for estate administration?

The responsibility typically falls on the executor named in the will. If no executor is specified or if there is no will, the court will appoint an administrator. This person has the legal duty to ensure that the estate is properly managed and distributed according to the law.

What are the main tasks involved in estate administration?

The main tasks include gathering and valuing the deceased’s assets, paying off any debts or taxes, and distributing the remaining assets to beneficiaries. It may also involve probating the will, if necessary, and addressing any legal challenges to the estate or the will.

What is probate, and is it always required?

Probate is the legal process of verifying the validity of a deceased person’s will. It’s not always required; its necessity depends on the state laws and the specific assets within the estate. Some assets, like life insurance payouts or jointly owned property, typically bypass the probate process.

How long does the estate administration process take?

The duration of estate administration can vary based on the complexity of the estate, the clarity of the will (if one exists), and any potential legal disputes. Simple estates might be settled within a few months, while more complex situations can take a year or more, especially if litigation is involved.
