Upon death, an individual known in the law as an "executor" or "administrator" will have the responsibility for ensuring that the deceased person's financial affairs are taken care of, and that assets are distributed according to that person's will.
Estate administration consists of various steps depending on the size and makeup of the decedent's estate. At the very least, it requires the payment of outstanding bills, preparation of an inventory of assets, legal advertising of the estate, and payment of inheritance and other taxes which may be due. Since the probate process can be quite complex, it's best to have a qualified attorney assist you in handling it.
