Planning Ahead for Estate Administration
You should consider the matter of estate administration when you are planning your estate. Expressing your wishes in writing is part of the equation, but who will set the wheels in motion after you pass away?
The Anatomy of a Trust
If you use a trust to arrange for the distribution of your financial assets, you name a trustee to administer the trust after your passing. You also name a beneficiary or beneficiaries who will receive monetary distributions after you die.
There are a number of different tasks that must be completed shortly after you pass away. Your trustee should understand how to proceed. In many cases, he or she will benefit from the assistance of a trust attorney.

The Legal Process of Probate
A last will must be admitted to probate before the heirs to the estate will receive their inheritances. The probate court examines the will to determine its validity. The personal representative or executor administers the estate under the supervision of the probate court.
There are many different tasks that must be undertaken during the probate process. To facilitate a smooth passage through probate, the executor will often bring in a probate lawyer to assist.
