Probate Administration in New Jersey
Haddon Heights Probate Attorney
Are you serving as a personal representative for an estate that is facing a difficult probate? As a
Haddon Heights estate planning attorney with over 30 years of experience in both estate planning and probate, I have the knowledge and seasoned skill needed to walk you through probate administration. Probate is the process of determining the validity of the will as well as the process of collecting, assessing and distributing the assets. If the estate is not eligible for summary probate, then is will go through the following process.
The Duties of an Executor in Probate Administration
If you are selected to serve as an executor or administrator, you will need to probate the estate. One of the first steps of probating the estate is collecting all of the assets. Once the assets are collected, they will need to be managed, which can entail anything from running a business to managing a portfolio of stocks.
Only certain types of property goes through the probate process, and an attorney can help you determine which property, such as trust funds, is exempt. While the property is being managed, the executor or administrator will need to pay any outstanding debts as well as the decedent's taxes. After all of the debts and taxes are paid, the estate will be closed and the assets will be distributed as inheritance to heirs. A Haddon Heights probate lawyer from my firm can advise you on everything from how to manage the property to how to close the estate.
