When faced with the loss of a loved one, we tend to not know where to start. Estate administration can be a very involved, time-consuming, and sometimes complex process. There is a process in which the loved one’s estate will need to be handled. You may or may not have to probate, this will depend on the complexity of the estate. Is there a will and/or a trust? This may make a difference. Are you the executor of the estate? Your job is very important, you will need to gather very crucial information for the attorney. The best thing to do is make a list of all the bank accounts, credit cards, retirement or investment accounts, life insurance policies, tax record, safe-deposit boxes and real estate that you are aware of. You will need to gather this information and provide it to the attorney. If you find yourself in this situation, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office.
