Getting assistance with your estate administration duties

Life can be complicated, but so can death. This is especially so when you consider the assets and items a typical person accumulates over a lifetime. Like they say, you can't take it with you and that means that someone will have to take care of the deceased's estate and affairs after death.

If you are someone in charge of administering an estate in Florida, you may be feeling overwhelmed with this often-monumental task. While it may be too late to back out of your estate administration duties, it is possible to ease your burden by seeking assistance. First, we will take a look at just a few of the duties an estate administration representative may have to perform.

  • Taking a complete and accurate inventory of the estate
  • Paying any debts left behind out of the estate
  • Filing a tax return on the estate when necessary
  • Collecting any debts owed to the estate
  • Identifying and contacting the estate's heirs and beneficiaries
  • Distributing assets to the estate's heirs after the debts are paid

Often, the people tasked with estate administration duties do not realize the true scope of their commitment and this is where the feelings of being overwhelmed come from. Fortunately, it is not difficult to get assistance.

The decedent's attorney can represent you and assist you in fulfilling your duties. You can also choose your own attorney to help you meet your important estate administration obligations. The point we hope to make is that you do not have to tackle your duties alone and in many cases, it may be unwise to proceed without legal assistance.
