Don't be afraid to seek help with estate administration

The loss of a loved one is never easy. Whether it is a sudden loss in a fatal car crash or some time coming as is the case in a fatal illness, once a person passes away, his or her loved ones are left to figure out how to move on with their lives. One part of death that people in New Jersey may not necessarily think about initially is that their loved one's estate may need to pass through probate. However, they must face a reality, especially if they are appointed as the administrator of their loved one's estate.

Probate is the process in which a person's debts are paid after they die, and then the remaining estate is passed on to the person's heirs. A judge will generally appoint someone as the estate administrator, or such a designation will be made in a person's will, if they have one.

Nonetheless, there are a lot of responsibilities that come with being the administrator of an estate as it goes through the probate process. Therefore, some people who were chosen to be the administrator of their loved one's estate chose to enlist the help of an estate administration attorney, who can guide them through the process.

For example, the legal team at Donnelly Ritigstein Law Offices assists clients going through probate administration. They handle estates of all sizes, from those of modest means to multimillion-dollar estates. They assist their clients with the minutia of estate administration, so their clients can focus on moving on with their life. They can assist with the completion of tax returns, informing creditors of the person's death, distributing assets to the person's heirs, handling death certificates, attending surrogate court hearings and more.

The probate process can be frustrating for those who are not familiar with it. Sometimes, the process can take years, and cost families a lot of money. The professionals at Donnelly Ritigstein Law Offices remain committed to seeing that their clients go through the probate process in a timely manner, preserving as many assets as possible and then distributing those assets in an efficient manner.
