Estate Administration

The main object of Estate Administration is to locate, manage and distribute all holdings of a deceased person’s estate. This is easier if a person has a will or trust drawn up before their death, so the estate administrator has an idea of who should receive various portions of the estate. Without a will, the laws of intestacy in California will determine beneficiaries.

If you have been appointed as an estate administrator by the Probate Court or in the will of someone who recently died, we also have the answers you need to do that job properly.

Pasadena Estate Administration Attorney

When a person dies, their property, assets and other items that make up their estate need to be collected, managed and distributed. If they owe debts or taxes, assets are used to pay those bills off before an estate administrator decides which assets and property to distribute to beneficiaries. At the Law Offices of Raul M. Montes, we help clients set up estate plans that include provisions for estate administration. We also work with people who have been appointed by the Probate Court or their loved ones to be estate administrators.

This entire process of locating assets, determining values, paying off debts and then managing the distribution of the remainder of an estate is not an easy process. It is very helpful to work closely with an experienced estate administration attorney to get this job done correctly and as quickly as possible.
