Contact our firm for a consultation. An attorney can review your situation and discuss how we can help you fulfill your duties as an executor or estate administrator.

What is Probate Administration?

Probate administration is the legal process that winds up the financial affairs of a deceased person and enables his or her property to be distributed to the beneficiaries named in a will. If the deceased person does not have a will, a similar process called estate administration is used to distribute the estate's assets to relatives of the decedent.

It is important that these tasks are handled properly. If they are not, it can expose the executor or estate administrator to the possibility of a lawsuit.

How We Can Help You

Our firm provides a complete range of services to executors and estate administrators. We can:

  • Advise you regarding your duties as an executor or administrator
  • File all papers with the court
  • Provide the proper notifications to beneficiaries (heirs) of the estate
  • Identify all assets and debts of the estate
  • Prepare and file estate tax returns
  • Assist in the re-titling and distribution of estate assets
  • File the final papers with the court

If you are an executor of a Kentucky or Indiana estate who lives outside the area, we can usually handle these tasks without your need to come to the area.

Our goal in every case is to complete the probate or estate administration process as quickly and efficiently as possible.
