If your deceased loved one owned assets through a well drafted, properly funded living trust, it is likely that probate can be avoided. The successor trustee distributes the assets of the deceased in a process accomplished through the estate trust attorneys. Our estate trust attorneys provide trust administration services with your family in mind. We treat you like family.
Trust and estate administration differs depending on the type of trust in place, but generally involves the following steps:
- Gathering the assets
- Certification of the successor trustee
- Application for tax identification numbers
- Distribution of the assets.
