There are few things as emotionally challenging in life as the death of a loved one. Grieving families face numerous challenging decisions that can be extremely draining, but they also face legal issues too complex to handle on their own. Our probate administration lawyers work to relieve grieving families of the legal implications of a loved one’s passing.
What Happens To A Loved One’s Assets After Death?
Many people choose to plan how their assets will be distributed and handled after their death by adopting a will or establishing a trust. However, executing the wishes left in a will or trust is much more complicated than distributing assets and families will need the help of an attorney to ensure the process is done correctly. For people who do not leave wills or trusts behind, the handling of assets after their passing is even more complicated.
When a loved one passes away, a lawyer will assist with the process of probate administration. This means the lawyer assists the executor or administrator of the estate in collection of the loved one’s assets, assessment and payment of any debts, and with distribution of the remaining assets amongst the rightful heirs and beneficiaries.
While this process may sound simple, the reality is probate administration must address complex issues like estate taxes, establishing clear and proper titles, and administering to multiple heirs.

If you are an executor of an estate, a trustee of a trust, or an heir, the probate administration process can have substantial legal risks if done incorrectly.
