Estate administration is the process of administering the estate in conformance with the law and the published directions of the deceased under the jurisdiction of the probate court.
Estate Planning is an important tool to minimize unnecessary tax payments and to possibly reduce the tax burden on the estate. Proper Estate planning is important, regardless of the size of your estate and assets. Proper Estate planning allows you to direct that the property you own at your death will go to the people and organizations of your choosing, in the manner and time frame that you request. This is certainly preferred over having the state choose how your assets will be distributed. Proper Estate planning is of particular importance where assets may be left to minors, young adults, individuals with special needs, or individuals who lack financial sophistication.
Estate & probate litigation may occur when legal disputes arise, such as contesting the validity of a last will and testament, contesting the terms of a trust, when a trustee, guardian, conservator, or estate administrator allegedly violates the duties and, responsibilities of the position the hold.
In addition, a proper estate plan will anticipate tax issues and in many cases, can greatly reduce taxes. Over the last decade, the laws governing the taxes that affect a decedent’s estate have changed dramatically, and it is expected that they will continue to change into the future. As a result, it is a good idea to review your estate plan regularly to ensure that it remains up-to-date. Estate planning often involves a last will and testament, trusts, durable power of attorney, life insurance policies, a living will, and other estate related documents.
