The estate probate and trust administration attorneys at The de la Torre Law Office LLC understand that this a stressful time for you and your family. Dealing with the loss of your loved one is a devastating situation. If you have been named a trustee or estate executor, you are also likely feeling overwhelmed and stressed by the probate process that lies ahead.
At The de la Torre Law Office LLC our compassionate and caring attorneys help you to navigate the complex legal matters involving probate and trust administration. Our legal services include helping trustees with trust administration and estate executors or personal representatives with probate administration and probate court.
Types of Probate Administration
When your loved one passes away, his or her estate will be probated in order to determine and collect the assets of the estate, process claims against the estate, and re-title assets in favor of beneficiaries. His or her assets will be sold or distributed in accordance with the last will and testament or the laws of intestate succession, and this process is known as estate administration. An estate executor or personal representative manages the estate administration process.
At The de la Torre Law Office LLC, our caring and professional attorneys and legal staff can assist you with probate administration matters such as:
- Reading and certification of the will
- Will contest representation
- Probate litigation representation
- Identifying heirs and beneficiaries
- Inventorying estate assets
- Valuing estate assets
- Locating identifying heirs and beneficiaries
- Identifying estate creditors
- Notifying estate creditors
- Submitting the estate to probate
- Paying the creditors
- Ensuring the tax returns are prepared
- Ensuring the tax returns are filed
- Funding the trust(s), when applicable
- Distributing the assets per the will
Trusts are legal entities that hold assets and property for third parties called beneficiaries. Trust documents provide for how the assets and property are to be distributed and managed. Administering a trust is similar in many ways to estate administration. A trustee is required to find, value, protect and distribute the property of the trust. If a trustee does not properly fulfill the duties of a trustee, the trustee could be held liable for financial losses.
Trust administration is different than probate administration because trust-based estate plans do not require court supervision. Trust administration also offers a measure of privacy not present in traditional probate administration. The trust administration attorneys at The de la Torre Law Office LLC can help you navigate through these complex and important legal matters.
Our attorneys can help Trustees in Trust Administration by:
- Filing the Notice of Trust with the court
- Ensuring that all tax returns are prepared to minimize the tax consequences
- Ensuring that all tax returns are filed
- Notifying beneficiaries
- Notifying creditors
- Notifying heirs
- Preparing a final accounting of the trust and its assets
