After the loss of a loved one everyone needs time to grieve. Unfortunately there are other matters that need to be handled in terms of wrapping up the estate. If you need assistance we can help.
If your loved one had a living trust you will go through a process called trust administration. The then acting trustee would collect the assets and accounts, pay outstanding bills and ultimately distribute the remainder to the beneficiaries it.
