After the death of a loved one, typically it is advisable to speak with an attorney to see if any legal work needs to be completed. In general, estate administration is the legal process of gathering the assets of a deceased person, paying that person’s debts and taxes, and distributing the remaining assets as prescribed by law.
Preparing documents such as Wills, Durable Powers of Attorney, Health Care Advance Directives and more is part of Estate Planning. Estate Planning is the process of developing a strategy to manage your personal, family and business affairs in the event of your death or incapacity. Simply put, how would you care for those which you are responsible?
