Probate Administration

Probate: Helping the Personal Representative (Executor) Carry Out Legal Duties

The Personal Representative (formally known as Executor) is the individual named in a Last Will responsible for performing a number of tasks necessary to wind up the decedent’s affairs. The probate process begins when the Personal Representative files with the Probate Court and is appointed the estate’s legal representative.

The Personal Representative’s substantial duties include gathering the deceased person’s assets, notifying beneficiaries and creditors, paying the person’s debts, distributing the remaining property to the beneficiaries, and filing all federal and state tax returns for the deceased person and the estate.

Most non-lawyers have neither the time nor the expertise to deal with the complicated probate process. Moreover, even innocent mistakes can be quite costly and time-consuming.
