Probate & Estate Administration
Warner Law Group is here to assist your family with Probate and Trust Administration by providing legal representation to trustees, executors, beneficiaries and heirs. Whether you have a will, or a living trust, we can assist your loved ones in settling your estate.
Estate planning is the process of designing the plan and estate administration is putting the plan into action. The process begins with an event that triggers a provision in your will or revocable living trust, such as incapacity or death.
Administering an estate is complex and may include inventorying and appraising assets, accounting for all transactions and expenses, notifying appropriate governmental agencies, filing final income tax returns and distributing trust assets to beneficiaries. If your estate must proceed through probate, this will require filing requisite documentation and following court procedures.
Trustees and executors have a fiduciary responsibility to act in the beneficiary’s best interest. They are responsible for making important decisions, sometimes quickly. We can help guide your loved ones through the process in a straightforward, sensitive and efficient manner.
