Typically, estate administration occurs after a loved one passes on so that their belongings can be successfully inventoried, taken care of, processed, and eventually transferred over to the new owner as chosen by the deceased or the court. Probate Courts oversee the entire process concerning Estate Administration.
After the death of a loved one, many people find themselves unprepared to deal with the legal issues that arise during the probate process. There are complex issues that must be dealt with, including resolving any outstanding debts or claims against an estate. Moreover, an estate must be properly administered and distributed according to the will or other probate order.
