Estate Administration

The administration of a well-planned estate may be as simple as providing a few documents to the relevant financial institutions, or it may require a complex and ongoing management of a trust for a surviving spouse or child. For some, a formal probate case is appropriate. Or, in the case of a revocable living trust, the successor trustee must step forward and move through the next phase of trust administration. Regardless of the path, this process can be overwhelming, and it is essential that you follow the proper legal steps in resolving a loved one’s financial affairs. The attorneys at BCK have the experience and knowledge to guide you through the process from start to finish.
