Guidance For The Administration Of An Estate
Losing a close friend or relative brings many emotional challenges. During this difficult time, the last thing mourners want to think about is the distribution of their loved one’s property and the resolution of their estate. However, the proper administration of an estate is essential to ensure your loved one’s wishes are respected.
At Newman Williams, P.C., we help individuals and families throughout the Poconos region of Pennsylvania settle loved ones’ estates and advocate for their best interests, as well as the intent of the deceased. We can help you ensure all debts are paid and assets are protected.
What Is Estate Administration?
When someone passes away, they leave an “estate” behind, which includes their assets, debts and property. Administering an estate involves the repayment of any remaining debts, the resolution of any tax matters and the distribution of the decedent’s property in accordance with their will. If there is no will, the court will appoint someone to administer the estate and guide the administration of assets and debts.
This process can be intensive and overwhelming, particularly for those trying to administer an estate for the first time. Our lawyers have the experience to take on the legal proceedings associated with estate administration and help you understand your choices so you can preserve your loved one’s wishes without undue stress, time or expense.
Planning For The Future
With advance planning and the right guidance, it is possible to structure your estate in a way that minimizes the burden of administering your estate after you’re gone. This can provide tremendous relief to your loved ones and allow them to focus on grief knowing that your interests are protected. Our attorneys help individual and corporate clients plan for the future and make important decisions about their assets.
