What Does The Estate Administration Process Entail?
Although every estate contains unique assets and must be assessed based on its particular circumstances, the estate administration process generally involves the personal administrator:
- Filing all necessary documents with the probate court
- Carrying out the terms of the will
- Contacting the heirs
- Taking inventory of all the assets in the estate
- Protecting property during the probate process (such as securing jewelry and other assets so they do not disappear)
- Giving notice to creditors
- Assessing the validity of creditor claims
- Distributing the estate’s assets
