Compassionate Guidance During Probate Administration

Probate is a process that is often necessary after a person dies. During probate administration, the executor or personal representative of the estate is responsible for managing and finalizing elements of the decedent’s estate. These tasks include:

  • Planning the funeral
  • Organizing the estate’s assets and debts
  • Notifying applicable parties about the death
  • Resolving debts
  • Distributing assets to heirs
  • Filing paperwork
  • Obtaining a final accounting of the estate
