What is Estate Administration

What is Estate Administration

Here are a few of the types of situations that can warrant an Estate Administration matter: 

1. If a loved one has passed away

 2. You are named as a beneficiary in someone’s estate 

3. You have been appointed as a personal representative/executor

4. You are a creditor of that individual’s estate or have been named as guardian of the person of a minor beneficiary an estate administration can be a complicated matter. 

What situations can make estate administration complicated?

When money or assets are involved, an estate administration can be as contentious as a divorce.

If you are a surviving spouse, whether you have been disinherited or not, you have legal rights and options available to you including, but not limited to, an elective share, elective life estate, caveat, Year’s Allowance, deceased spouse unused estate tax exemption, etc.

Are there creditors of the decedent and his estate which exceed available assets requiring a real property to be sold to pay these debts, costs, and expenses?  Are there multiple beneficiaries, many of whom have not liked the other for years?  Do you have minor, disabled or beneficiaries and trusts or no trusts established for their benefit?  Does the estate have a cause for wrongful death? The law firm of Weaver, Bennett & Bland can answer your questions and advise you how best to proceed.
