Experienced Probate And Estate Administration

The loss of a loved one is an emotionally charged time. Being named as the executor of your family member’s estate likely adds a layer of challenges during an already difficult chapter in your life and those of your family members.

The Role Of An Executor

Serving as an executor is an important responsibility. Depending on the size of the estate, specific steps must be taken that include the following:

  • Distributing assets to beneficiaries
  • Resolving any remaining debts and claims
  • Selling assets to cover debts, claims, and expenses, including funeral costs
  • Filing of state and federal taxes, if necessary
  • Preparing a final accounting documenting all transactions

In North Carolina, the administration of an estate can be complicated and time-consuming. It is not a “do-it-yourself” process, specifically when it comes to significantly valuable estates. In those situations, the help of a skilled, knowledgeable, and experienced attorney can make the process easier and help ease the burden you and your family face.
