Probate & Other Post Death Administration

Transfer of property at death, even under a will, does not necessarily require a full probate. Often other, more summary court procedures allow us to help the client minimize the time and cost. In other cases, where clients have used revocable (living) trusts and followed our instructions, there is no probate, but what is still to be done (for example, closing out the trust and filing final tax returns) has to have a name, so we call it “post-death administration,” and if there is other on-going work (continuing trust, for instance) we call this work “trust administration.”
