Post-death administration refers to how a deceased person’s legal and financial affairs are handled after death. If the deceased dies owning any assets at all, there is a process to deal with those assets to protect heirs and creditors. Their estate will have to be administered, a process we call estate administration in Florida. This process is where the deceased’s estate is handled and ultimately closed. The scope of the estate administration process will depend on several important factors.
Sometimes the Florida court system must be involved with the estate administration. That will depend on the type of assets that the deceased had. Certain types of assets have to go through the probate court to pass to heirs, whether the deceased had a will or not.
If the deceased died with a trust in place, then a similar process is called trust administration. That is where the assets of the trust are handled and ultimately distributed to the trust beneficiaries. Sometimes it is necessary to undertake a trust administration in Florida as well as a probate estate administration.
